There are no sanctioned drag racing rules that state you must have a top on your car.

It's caged, it's legal for racing.

honestly though I would feel safer with a roof over my head on the strip...even if it is perfectly OK to drag.

I guess I never thought about feeling safe, it's for the daredevil I guess.

I ride motorcycles. Do I feel safe when I'm riding them...yes? Will I get hurt if I wreck, most likely?

That is one awesome looking ride. I'll be there at Barrett-Jackson in January to see it go!

I thought these were mostly built for NHRA stock rules and I also thought if you run a convertible at an NHRA event that the top has to be up.

I think they will really auction the second one but the first one that GM is "keeping" will probably be stored in a nice garage that might happen to be owned by Mr.Hendricks...My thoughts

Why did they even put a radio in there if they were just gonna mount switches to the screen?Just plain stupid. Nothing against verts but this just looks silly imo.

I don't get the complaints. This thing is awesome! Why is everyone questioning a COPO convertible. Why?.... Why not?

Is this car even stable enough to drive?

Doesn't make sense to have a COPO "Race" car you wouldn't race. This is a real headscratcher even for SEMA

then why put a empty shell in there? why not just make a flat panel to mount the switches too?

Maybe second.

SAABs United bought the last produced SAAB 9-3 collectively. (Last SAAB ever? We'll see.)

Naturally the cost is way less than what that monster will go for but still...

They paid roughly $35k for it. I can't find the exact number. The retail price of it was ~48k.

http://www.saabsunited.com/2012/05/s...omplished.html .
If I'm not allowed to link to there, please let me know or just remove the link please.

EDIT: What they did with it was that they donated it to the SAAB Museum, well technically they still own it but it's being displayed at the SAAB Museum.
