Watched it yesterday and it sure brought back many memories since these cars together with Volvo were for us what Ford and Chevy was for you guys here in the States. They were all over the place.
Funny, they never mentioned the freewheel feature of transmission even though they focused a lot on the drive train. Don't remember if Saab did away with it at some point but the car was also built for another 7 years in Sweden.
Sure gave me a big smile when they lifted out the engine to do the clutch and I remember how critical it was to put a piece of wood under the bell housing to angle the transmission upwards for easy fit when the engine came back in again. No fancy cherry pickers in those days but a rope from the barn roof or two guys with a 2x4 over their shoulders to lift it out and in.
And the lower starter nut that was easiest to reach when engine had been lifted up slightly.
I admire sheet metal fabricators and to watch them repair rust like that since I have no artistic bone in my body and my rust repairs in the day left a lot to ask for.
But it drove me bonkers to hear him refer to the car as a 9-6 and not a 96. How big of a Saab fan are you really Mike????
