Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

One of the few nice things about Mass...if your car survived the salt and roads for 15 years it is exempt from emissions. They do not give much faith that cars survive to that point, which in many cases they do not. However they still have safety inspections, which is always funny because the place ...

Re: Widowmaker Project (Building a Faux GT2)

Love this thread! Everything from the garage build to the cars - it's all awesome. That oil pan is a work of art. I also really like your porsche posters. Mind sharing where you got them? Thanks! If you asked me ten years ago, I would have said a dream space like this was unattainable for an averag...

Re: Widowmaker Project (Building a Faux GT2)

Where does the time go I always wonder, with a break from plowing and shoveling snow with having some nice weather this weekend, it was time to focus back in the garage on some projects. Being that Corrado's are scarce birds these days, I was asked if mine would be done for New England Dustoff...whi...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

1st pic okay. Second pic...isn't that spring upside down on the strut? Just wondering... The H&R springs for the Saabs are a little funky, they can only go on 1 way...the mounts normally drop out the little plastic ball bearings and then the spring starts to twist and then fails.

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Step 1 always involves pushing the torches over to the work area....normally seems to gain compliance from then on out. Was taught that trick by my buddy that always found the rustiest British cars possible. He simply stated to start "To be successful working on cars in the New England you push the ...

Re: Good Week @ 996Outpost.com

Heh - one of my sales reps was going on and on about how she was gonna get a Saab - and then she FINALLY bought a Saab...but a modern one (read: a Malibu re-badged as a Saab). I referred to it as her Malibu for the duration of ownership, which was disappointingly short from my perspective but seemi...

Got my St Pat's shirt today 20190306_205646.jpg :lol: Other night herd a pop on the Saab when pulling out of work...thought it was making noise from the front. To my surprise this greeted me. https://i.imgur.com/xNvIGaD.jpg https://i.imgur.com/FlFBbK9.jpg Second time an H&R spring has snapped on th...
