Unknown Formula S photo
My friend Santo posted this photo on Facebook. He's primarily a little-Italian-car-guy and his purpose was to announce that the Lancia Dagrada in the photo was soon to be running again. Of course, I immediately noticed the Formula S lined up next to the Lancia.
His guess is that the photo is from a race in 1965 at Thompson Speedway in Connecticut. I don't have any race results in my records that would help verify that. Do you?
Wilfried sends his holiday greetings
I received the following note from Wilfried Brunner yesterday:
Hello Stefan Vapaa
My Saab is now in Holidays by a good friend of mine, i'ts Peter Dätwyler from the "Race-Inn" in Roggwil/Switzerland.
He has always good ideas, see foto.
So, from us in Switzerland to all the Quantum-Fans: Happy New Year
The note was accompanied by the following photo:
I looked up "Race-Inn Roggwil" and found this: http://www.race-inn.ch/Last Updated ( Tuesday, 08 January 2013 09:04 )
Welcome Wilfried Brunner
We have a new member and another car found... In Switzerland!
Wilfried writes that he acquired his car about 18 years ago. It was completely disassembled at that time.
He was told that it was one of a batch of 10 cars brought over by Swiss-Saab Importer "MACCHI".
The intention is to restore the car. Most of the pieces appear to be there. The main missing component is the rear body section.
Here are the pictures he has sent so far:
Mercifully, the serial number is known.
Does anyone know what this sticker used to say?
Vidar on ice, 2nd video
As a followup to the previous video that Vidar sent, here's another that features him briefly.
Vidar takes the Formula S out on the Norwegian ice
I received the following message from Vidar on February 21st and this looks like so much fun that I think I will have to give it a try someday!
this weekend i was driving the quantum on ice,with norwegian saab-friends.
We had a great time! The quantum woorked fine,but the studded tyres was to slippery,the car floated on the surface.need much longer studds(nails).Will built a new gear-box ,with 8:39 and spec 1 gears,think that will suit the quantum better,and maybe port the engine a bit for more Rpm.But strong and great fun to drive,it was.
Send you a link with a You Tube video we made.
Vidar H Schevik!
Sikkert greit å sende denne linken videre hvis du vil at noen andre skal se (da slipper de å søke)
