If you wanted to be someone in California in 1987, then you were driving a 900 Turbo Convertible
Another highlight is Per Gillbrand showing off a scale model of the 92. He took the bonnet off a 92 and put in a miniature two-stroke engine (1.2 ccm).
It is a necessity.
(Per Gillbrand commenting on using turbos in family cars)
A red thread throughout this documentary is the reporter’s voyage from Trollhättan to Dakar (through Paris of course). In tonights episode he has reached the desert in Morocco.

As with the other programs, we also get to visit one of Saab’s many fans. Tonight’s guest is the owner of the Indian Turbo. A beautifully preserved 9000 Turbo.
The Talladega run was of course duly mentioned. There are also interviews with Peter Bäckström and Jan-Åke Jonsson.
