    You would think having been a Saab dealer tech I would hate these things, truth is I actually like them. I'm actually surprised by the BHG since they're usually pretty bloody tough, I'm guessing a fair bit of neglect in this car's history.

    Oh and there were some great buys from the hail auctions, I picked up a 1 owner/full history 121 for a $200 bid. Needed an engine mount and a pair of tyres for rego and it's now my workhack.

      Last I heard Mike had this this on a trailer, then radio silence, now Marco has it?!

      Boy am I confused.

      If you need to know any of the history before it sat in a western Sydney front yard for 6 years, let me know. My old man bought it from a dealer in Sydney in 2004 I think, drove it for a few years, sold it to a mate of mine who continued to drive it for a few years before it went back to Sydney in 2014, was used as a runabout for a few months then ran out of rego.

                  Can the thread title please be changed to "Born from jetsam: Marco's 1998 Saab 9-3 turbo"

                  Saab turbo swapped GT86? Like an inverse Saab 9-2x

                    Every time I see that title my mind transposes Born from jetsam: to Born from jism:
                    He jerked off with the determination of someone within sight of Everestís summit, having lost all his friends and Sherpas, having run out of supplemental oxygen, but preferring death to failure.

                      Isn’t that all of us, really?

                      I don’t own the car, but I’m now the custodian of this invaluable piece:
