Update by Per Schroeder to the Saab 99 project car
Apr 17, 2007

Per and Kim drove up to Pennsylvania this weekend to pick up our latest project car, a $1400 1977 Saab 99. It’ll be a rallycross and eventual historic-class stage rally car. Here are some shots that we took along the way. We left Thursday afternoon and arrived back home in Florida on Saturday night.

We purchased the car from Luke Sorensen, who rallies this super-fast Saab 99 with Nasa and Rally America. Luke is a master fabricator and his car’s preparation shows it.

We made it down to Maryland on Friday night.

Back in our driveway, we sorted out a rough running condition, which turned out to be pretty easy, the distributor was loose and the timing was “wicked retarded.” Next up, we need to fix an oil leak on the front (or is that rear?) of the engine.

The interior is very clean and yes, that is the original upholstery.
