---- 1984 Saab 900, 3 door, 8 valve turbo, 5 spd manual ----
The car was originally bought for $500 with a good body and interior and precious little else. I had a '83 4 door black 900t that I had mechanically rebuilt but the body had rusted so far it wouldn't pass inspection. This car would get all those parts. Thanks to a lot of help from a good friend, Seth Strait, most of the work was completed in a single long weekend!
The mechanicals from that car were taken out and put into this one, from the engine and gearbox to the exhaust system and suspension. Some visual touches, a can of silver spray paint later (for the grill and front spoiler) and it looked as good as it went! This car was my daily driver until I hit a deer with it. That damage combined with a large amount of underbody rot condemned this once beautiful daily driver to a parts car.
