The SPG. Later in the day the SAAB employee driving me in this car got it up to 85 mph before we ran out of runway and had to stop to turn around. You can see the ’78 99 Turbo in the background.
John Libbos and “guest” driving the SPG. Look, even the fog lamps are intact!
The ’90 SPG interior.
The rear of the ’90 SPG. And dig that fire extinguisher!
