AJs vs The Soiled SAAB
AJs took on the complete detail challenge of this 1995 SAAB 900. The car
was used as a commuter vehicle through the red dirt roads of Mendocino
County. The customer was hoping to sell the car and needed a professional
to handle this extreme detailing job. Watch to see the amazing
NOTE: Engine steam cleaning is an additional service on top of a complete
detail. Normal completion time for a job this big usually takes between 4-5
hours. Additional fees are also charged for heavily soiled vehicles and to
those older than the year 2000.

SAAB Rally and Racing Films
The Saab 96 was driven most famously by Erik Carlsson, in many
international rallies. His most famous successes were first in the 1960,
1961 and 1962 RAC Rallies and first in the 1962 and 1963 Monte Carlo
Rallies. It was these successive, top-level victories that put the Saab 96
'on the map' and established its reputation for reliability and toughness.
Carlsson also competed in the East African Safari Rally. Famous rallying
names such as Simo Lampinen, Per Eklund, Pat Moss-Carlsson, Tom Trana, Stig
Blomqvist and Carl Orrenius have also been connected with the Saab 96.
Will it Run? Episode 14: 1978 Saab 99 Part 3 of 3
Hi! This time we're going to have a go at getting this '78 Saab running!
It's been sitting around for over 15 years... I bought it last year, and
last month I decided that I would try to get it operational and maybe even
plate it and use it for a daily driver.
Well, it needs a lot of work... the fuel pump, lines, and accumulator are
all shot, the heater is leaky and smells terrible, the wiring harness is
burned up, and the roof and deck lid are peeling and rusty. Also, someone
took a lot of the car apart years ago and never put it back together! The
Exhaust is leaking badly, and the
wheels and tires are mismatched. Well, the budget is still zero, so we'd
better get busy!
Thanks everyone for watching and subscribing! Please rate and share with
your friends if you like this kind of thing... cheers!
This Saab 900 Was Built to Last
On a brisk Utah morning, at the base of a ski resort, we spent some time
with a Saab 900 SPG. Owner, Jordan Melville, dives into his love for Saab,
detailing how he brought this 900 back from the brink of the wrecking yard
to experience the car as if it were brand new.While modern day Saab
struggles to keep their cars on the road, Jordan's 900 SPG keeps the flame
2011 Saab 9-5 Aero Turbo6 XWD Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Saab 9-5 Aero.
Released as a late 2010 model, the 2011 now boasts a panoramic glass roof
along with the great redesign. Overall makes the car have a much more
stately appearance and further set it in a more sport/luxury sedan class.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, start it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough
tour/review of this car designed to give others a greater overall
appreciation of the vehicle.
Saab 2-stroke barn find
This car had been stored in a barn for nearly 30 years when I found it, and
with good help from my son and a friend organized a rescue operation in the
August 2012. Here is what happened that sunny day south-east in Norway.
Yes, You Can Build a Sick Vintage Rally Car - AFTER/DRIVE
Ever wanted to go back in time, when screaming two-stroke Saabs were the
kings of rally? Find out how you can, with Bruce Turk, Saab jedi-master and
vintage rally dude.
On the car's specs Bruce adds: "It now has a 850cc three cylinder two
stroke motor that started life as a 750cc but the block was bored out to
850cc. It has Monte Carlo 850 pistons, a GT 750 crank shaft, a dual Solex
"Super kit Carb, lightened flywheel, heavy duty clutch (extra springs
added) fully ported intake and Exhaust
ports to rally spec II specifications and a Spec II rally 4 speed Saab gear
box which is very rare I might add... Oh, estimated HP is 60 BHP"
