Did they get that car to actually run? In the top picture, aren't there some things that still need to be hooked up? Looks like they had to gut the entinre engine compartment to make the V10 fit (i.e. no internal fenders, etc)?

That looks like a video of the Viper sans bodywork. Did they ever get the transplanted Viper setup in the Saab wagon to run? As I mentioned, there's a few things missing in the one pic of the V10 in the Saab engine compartment for me to think it's an actual runner?
