Hoons of Years Back: Saab Suite

This image was lost some time after publication, but you can still view it here.

Our buddy Nick sent over a Googlized video of Saab's famous (at least in 1987, and only among gearhead types) "Saab Suite: Ballet in Three Acts for Eight Saab 9000 Turbos" short — a 10-minute ballet of synchronized driving filmed on a closed airstrip. The spot led to the formation of Saab's Performance Team, which still performs feats of automobile acrobatics, and likely resulted in the untimely deaths of several pallets' worth of automatic transmissions.
