If it was him, that car was really humming along.

Darryl spent a year in Sweden and he got a real kick out of that 
stroker buzzing by us.

Re: cool

That's what I thought it was. I bought a used one years ago off a 240Z a guy was parting out. It fits pretty good, but I never got around to installing it.

Re: Stroker on I-5 Sunday Night

    I believe I saw the same car last Monday here in Seattle, two blocks from my house. I 
heard it before I saw it and took it as the first sign of Spring. Definitely a stroker, had 
backup lights but wasn't a MC, the clincher is the roof and trunk racks.  It put a smile on 
my face as I drove my truck to work.

Re: cool

The 74 Sonett I'm restoring doesn't have a front spoiler, but the  
paint is faded in the shape of one and there are mounting holes on  
the nose, so it must have had one in the past.

Chip, any word on Richard Arndt?

He had contacted me when I had my 93 for sale and I forwarded your post to a guy in Bellingham who sold him a Sonett lll. Also Jon is holding a deposit from Richard on a stroker 96 he has for sale.

Lubrication

Here's a silly question. The factory manual says to lubricate the car  
every 6000 miles, or twice a year. I've never done it, so I figure I  
better start. But I don't know where to begin. What do I need to get  
started? A grease gun and grease I assume. Are there different kinds  
of grease guns, or are they all the same? "Saab Special Grease" is  
NLA I assume, so what do I use instead?

Is there anything not covered in the manual I should know about?

-Josh

Jon and I have been in communication. Richard does not look like he's going 
to make it much longer.

I have always used a grease with moly in it. If it's earlier than 
about 1970, and original, you should have grease fittings on all four 
ball joints, both tie-rod ends, and one on the steering rack. Follow 
the manual's directions for greasing the rack.

CLEAN THE FITTINGS BEFORE GREASING! Many people don't do this, and 
they get dirt from the outside of the fitting into the joint. The dirt 
grinding away inside is what kills the joint.

By greasing it regularly, you should be able to keep the joints from 
wearing out for a long time.

Also, pay attention to the manual's service intervals on the 
transmission. Because they have ball bearings, instead of rollers as 
used in later gearboxes, the 95/96/Sonett transmissions are more 
susceptible to bearing damage from debris, and clean gear oil is 
_very_ important to the life of the transmission.

This is an ex-Richard Cobun car. I almost bought it when Mike (seller) did 
ca. 1996. Needs fresh gas and a Pertronix. Great ride.
