Loony Labor Day: 1973 Saab Sonett III

A stock SAAB Sonett is a loony car, powered by 2-stroke or V4 mated to the front wheels with an Italian inspired design created/executed by a group of Swedes.  The 3rd generation Sonett was a strange looking vehicle when new, but somehow a customizer turned this one into even MORE of a head turner spit-taker.  Find this 1973 Saab Sonett III custom offered here on eBay bidding for $2,600 reserve-not-met with a $6,000 buy-it-now located in Sarasota, FL.  Tip from Rene.

The Sonett was a futuristic looking vehicle when it was released, with its wedge shape and scoops, but this one has added front bumper funkiness, side scoops, etc.  It  is also much lower than stock and riding on some 16-inch wheels fitted via adapters. 

Power comes from a stock looking Saab V4 engine, expect the 1.7 liter V4 to put out 65 horsepower and manage to push the wedge to a surprisingly high 103 mph top speed.
