Wow, all of this is amazing.

I assume Yenko is no longer in business. What was the last year in business ?

The Chevrolet dealership went by the wayside a while ago. I remember the dealership changed names to Sun Chevrolet, but there was a Yenko Honda subsequently. I would need to move a lot of cobwebs to provide dates.

I believe the Slate Blue SAAB 900 Turbo in the picture is an '82 as an '81 would have different looking Michelin TRX wheels and tires. That means the '81 Z28 turbos in front may have been at clearance prices.

In those days, it was reasonably inexpensive to become a SAAB dealer compared to what it costs to become a car dealer today. Not surprised he had several dealerships.

Actually, Joe Dvorchak, Yenko's performance mechanic at the time, was using a part of the rear shop to tune the,turbo Camaros. This was about the time that Yenko separated his Honda and Chevrolet dealerships and moved Honda into the location where,Saab had been..hence Saab moving to the old building in Canonsburg
