Engine Of The Day: Saab Two-Stroke Three-Cylinder

Two-stroke engines for cars have always been on the smoky and noisy side, but they sure do make a lot of power for their size!

There's no need for all those power-sucking valvetrain parts and wasted piston motions with a two-stroke. Saab built two- and three-cylinder two-strokers during the 1950s and 1960s, and the three-banger was installed in various Saabs (including the 95 and 96) from 1955 through 1966. Thanks to Tanshanomi for the recommendation!
