SAAB and Arne Gunnarson in Desert racing...

As always one of the best parts of the monthly Dirt Sports magazine is the Hourglass feature at the end of the issue.   For the April issue it covered Arne Gunnarson and his Saab 96 and its Baja efforts.  The combination would win its class multiple times and was actively campaigned until 1991 racing multiple desert races each year.  The actual race car is still in existance and parked under an avocado tree in Arne's backyard.  So if you want to restore a historic vehicle and perhaps run it in a NORRA event in the future it is likely available.

If you want to read the full article in the photo but can't make it out from this pic, let me know and I will transcribe it for you.
