Because I can't stand driving auto boxes ...
A few years ago I would have been very interested, but for the lump and running gear... Aint got the urge any more to work on things with 4 wheels
Test drive a BMW with an 8 speed adaptive auto with the option of sequential manual clutchless changing and you will change your mind!!
Other marques are available.
Road tax? Fuel consumption?
Your input on a couple of current threads in Bird Help would have been more useful!!
That's a very nice motor, I'm surprised its going so cheaply!
wouldn't fit in my drive
My road tax is £540 pa and my fuel consumption is 24mpg on a good day. Hence I bought my immaculate Saab 95 estate for £500. That car is prolly worth about £2k on the right day. Interestingly it passed the new inner London test!
All Saab drivers are arrogant.
You do know it’s a Vauxhall Vectra with a party frock?
Saab 95 or 9-5? I had a 95 way back in the late 80s. A seven seater estate with a Ford V4, column manual change and a foot-operated lever by the clutch pedal that disengaged the gearbox and allowed the car to freewheel. A brilliant car that unfortunately suffered body rot and had to be scrapped.
The low price is proly cos it goes cheap... it should go vroom !
9-5, SB. I had the 99, 900 and 9000 turbo. All great cars.
That's a coincidence. I too had a 99 and a 99 Turbo. If you can find the Turbo nowadays it can be worth a few bob.
Very sad what happened to Saab - we used to use it (and others) as a case study on how good brands can be destroyed by the bean counters.
All brands have to evolve to survive (except Morgan) ...how many what were 'respected and admired' brands have gone the wrong way.....for example, Stanley, Adidas and others now sell cheap Far East tat.
Saab reborn, electrically
Cougar 377 - you may want to rethink the 'bad spelling' thing....the bad incorrect spelling in the picture is entirely appropriate and quite witty in it's context!
