5k: 1969 Saab Sonett II
When searching world web for cool rides,
On auction giant ebay in Santa Paula, socal,
We’ve found a Thorsday candidate for daily drives,
A 69 Saab Sonett for seven point five k, buy-it-now,
This Sonett is a funky looking crimson beauty,
Built by madmen from fiberglass in Sweden,
At least a restorer won’t find rust or putty,
And the smokey ones are driven by motors for weedin,
But this Sonnett is powered by a Taunus V4,
That produces a paltry amount of brake horsepower,
By SAE’s gross count it makes about 64,
Put to asphalt via centrifugal clutch to the front tire;
We like the Sonnett – but find its exterior style,
Makes our mouth taste a bit like bile.
Thanks to tip from DT reader Scot! Email us here Shakespeare: firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh yeah – thanks to Scot for the tip!
~ hahah, Shakespeare's got nuthin on you folk.
anyone interested in the SAAB story, worlds lowest mile Sonnett, SAAB USA Heritage Collection Cars, vintage parts, tech tips, Team Saab of Bonneville,(2stroke land speed record in class) and the SAAB community generally should set aside some time to see Tom Donney's site, or take a trip to Fort Dodge, Iowa to see what Tom has been up to.
the trolls of Trollhattan are smiling on DT.
Have you ever tasted bile? You don't want to. It will eat the finish off your shoes. Not a good thing to drink.
Is DT taking a poetry class?
Looks like DT is wrote a "Sonnett" about the Sonett.
