Saab 96

Saab 96
These were kind of unique, two stroke engine, four speed manual transmission, front wheel drive, the shifter was on the steering column. They didn’t weigh much and that was a good thing because they didn’t have much power. A classmate in high school had one, it was comfortable enough, kind of sporty and had a good size trunk to hold his guitar and amplifier. He had a red Harmony Rocket electric guitar, a Silvertone 2 x 12 tube driven amplifier and well practiced basic skill with it. Love the reverb in those 60s era amps.

Later on, a lot later on, I had several different models of Saabs, every one of them was a delight to drive and pretty easy to work on.
