If someone wanted to get into goofy 2-stroke V-4 front wheel drive Swedish cars, this seems like a decent way to go about it. Nice price.

V-4's are goofy, but they're not two strokes.

I knew a guy who raced an earlier yellow one of those. So cool in a dorky way.

Aren't they the ones that quit oiling when you coasted, or was that much earlier?

My bad, late night CL surfing for sub $1000 cars messes with my Otto cycle...

I raced one, pretty fun car. I heard a turbo from a Corvair screws right on.

These are the 4-stroke engines bought from Ford that evolved into a V6 that got morphodited over the years in its use from the Capri all the way to the SOHC 4-liter used in various things like the Ranger.

And that is what the relation a SAAB has with a wheelbarrow.

If I was close I would so be picking this up today. One of these is on my short list of cars to own. They are tough to DD in FL without AC but I love the styling.

That's a great price if it has floors.

Whew. If that was a 95 (wagon version), I'd be in trouble...

No, you'd be crying because I already bought it.

No, I'd be thanking you since I'm already up to my eyeballs in too many cars...

If the red isn't enough for you, add this one from Ebay and have a pair.

There was one up here several years ago riding around with a roof chop and a whale tail on the back. Looked bad ass! Same guy had a Europa.
