Diamond /Bassett / Aero circle track wheels are growing on me.

Whoever did this needs shooting at dawn in front of their family and friends as an example to others.

Some one should have stuck to hookers and blow while listening to Vanilla Ice and stayed away from the garage.

My old '86 SPG. Pretty sure it's sitting in PA as a stalled T5 install.

Mojo, it beginning to returneth aided by these pics, but also my original 'Speak to me oh Gurus of that rare beast, the classic SAAB 900 turbo' thread way back in Nov 2012 here. http://grassrootsmotorsports.com/forum/grm/speak-to-me-oh-gurus-of-that-rare-beast-the-classi/56976/page1/

Particular point to reinvigorate me are:

And

We ran it deep in the boost for hours at a time on that event; she never hiccuped. I'll be running it at a TSD this weekend up in B.C., where it will almost turn 300k miles, original bottom end (cross hatches still visible at 250k). It has a Quaife, is lifted a bit, skidplate, "boxed" control arms, and lifted SPG springs, but that's really about it. We cannot seem to kill it. It has thousands and thousands of miles on gravel and snow. Yes, it's rattly as hell now, but is quiet on the highway, and drives quite nicely to/from events.

And And of particular interest

More is achievable without considerable effort. The way I got 200 hp was to install a cold-start injector from an Audi, placed upstream of the throttle (not in the throttle, where it will actually fit. The switch is pressure-activated using an over-pressure (hobbes) switch from a Saab. I set it to turn on at about 13 or 14 psi.

And while not relevant to the current Mojo, lack of Mojo or returning Mojo there's this that just hits the WANT button in a disgustingly awesome way.
