1987 Saab 900 Turbo SPG - the Snaab!
I bought this car in late/1988 when I moved to Colorado.
My cousin Dave buys cars that have "problems" at auctions
and fixs them up. This car was not even two years old,
but had been vandelized, and I wish I had taken some pictures
of it BEFORE Dave starting working on it - REALLY looked bad!
However, Dave's speciality is body work (he has a number of
"show" cars) and he did an impressive job fixing it up and
it was in fine shape mechanically - I had very few issues
with it the 15 years I owned it.
With a family and two growing boys, we bought a
Toyota Sienna XLE Minivan.
So I sold the Saab Turbo in July/2003 to by brother Myke - it had
over 150,000 miles on it but was still going strong and
a fun car to drive - good acceleration and great handling.
Myke's comment was: "I'm going to get a ticket with this car!"
I was sorry to see it go.
