Before my time. I learned to drive stick on my fathers Saab 99 rally tribute clone. But I know more than a few of you love these things.

Well now I know where "SAAB" came from.

I knew about that "born from jets" deal and the Viggen, and in fact, I read the SAAB book that my monster-in-law got when she purchased her 900, but it never clicked. Maybe because I always saw it written Saab, and not SAAB, like JVAB.

I get to be WVAG, kind of like VWAG, but handsomer and smarter.

Only 8 hours left, and still only at $4,000. Still seems like a killer deal.

Sadly, I think this one is beyond saving. Beautiful old girl.

Better car than a 99, that thing weighs under 1950lbs and alternate final driver is not easy but do-able, gearsets are out there--about 1000 to 1 over 99s.
Engine is dead easy to make 130 hp, and easy but 'spensive to make 155-165...

light car, 5.43 final drive and 145-165 hp...They go.
