It’s been all Alfa this evening as I trotted on down to see the Targa Tasmania cars down at Wrest Point here in Hobart.
To restore the balance, here’s a classic Saab 99 Turbo, belonging to Simon in Sydney, right here in Australia. Magnificent.
This car was restored some 11 years ago by a local saab specialist. It had a bare metal respray, engine was overhauled etc. They also fitted a reinforced 5 speed from an 88 900 turbo, which makes it alot more driveable around town. It has water injection, a high flowed T3 turbo running 17psi, 3 inch straight through exhaust, and the cold start injector cuts in at 7psi. This car has been featured in Australian Classic Car Magazine twice, March 96 and November 2000. Photo was taken at McMahons Point, Sydney Harbour, last year.
