9 months in a coma...

Been a long time. Some may not know, but last July 4 the trans blew on the Commemorative, so it sat in the garage waiting for the budget to build so I could repair it -- hobby car after all.

S&S, the local Saab indie shuttered their doors last year, so once the finances built, we trailered it behind the 9-7X Aero some 70 miles to Viking Automotive (SAAB REPAIR AND SAAB SERVICE GAITHERSBURG - VIKING AUTOMOTIVE) last Tuesday. Picked it up Saturday. Car feels brand new!





The tow Slaab:

Back home!


A much needed wash after the 70 mile drive home:

Hey, thanks, everyone! Tweek, Erickson did the rebuild, Viking did the install. (Don't have a cherry picker, or for that matter the time with the twins running around!)
