In addition to winning three Four Cylinder Super Stock track championships in upstate New York- the first at age 14- in a Saab, he also ice-races the quirky Swedish front-drivers. Good work, Claude!

I used to slide my Saab 96 all over the dirt roads of South Jersey's Pine Barrens. It went places 4x4s had trouble going.

Looking back, I realize that I did everything I could to rip the wheels out from under it... and didn't even knock the front end out of alignment (although I did bring the exhaust system home tied to the roof once or twice).
