Seem like it's a little too deep off the tech geeky end of DIY unity energy principles. Peltier junctions pulling heat off the square tube frame that doubles as the exhaust pipe, How many P-junctions is he going to use?

That guy is a foamer. He will likely cover the pipes in junctions. You can also stack those things.

Cool old Saab, just won't go in reverse.

There is no such thing as a "cool old Saab".

Good news is you don't NEED reverse to drive it off a cliff.

Chopped Trail 90s are becoming a 'thing.' I knew that chromed-out versions were somewhat common, but only just learned that chopping them is catching on.

I am going to file it under "Neat, but I don't get it."



That Ford V4 is cool, but I'd rather have this...

Shawn has never owned a SAAB 2 Stroker. My old '65 95 Wagon "Rude Boy" would have changed his mind.

Saab 96

That Saab is friggin cool. My brother had one and it's the first car I ever drove (at 14 years old).

Four speed on the tree, with a strange ritual for reverse (had to pull outward on the shifter IIRC). His also had a "freewheel" lever on the floor. With it engaged you could let off the gas and it would drop to idle and coast.

And the Ford comment is correct, the engine was stamped FOMOCO - blindingly fast in comparison to the 36hp two stroke version

Stock 1500 cc V4, meh not so much, and you've driven a Monte Carlo 850 engined SAAB?
