ACN-403 kaadon jälkeen sivusta

Roll over. Unknown event and what happened for the car after that.

There is 20 years little bit unknown period before the car was founded in last minute before it went to the yank yard and final smelter. Last years the car has used as a ”Jokkisauto” or swedish version ”Folkrace”- car ( some kind of stock car/common rally cross class in Finland). This class has destroyed a lot of group 2 and 4 legendary rallycars in Finland. I really like to see if this old Works Saab shine someday as it should to do.
