We may have found the ultimate Saab Slaab right here. This Brooklyn seller is letting go of his or her 1991 Saab 9000 Turbo. The price is fair, just $1800 for a nicely styled, nicely trimmed, nicely driving car. It has high miles (200,000+ on the odo), but it’s a manual with a lovely interior and what sounds like a well-maintained drivetrain. The only scary points are some rust on a shock mount, a busted muffler, and the aforementioned mileage.
The seller notes all of these points, but only after getting something off of his or her chest: parting with this beautiful Saab is an arrow straight through the heart. This is how the listing starts:
It is with great reluctance that I am putting my 1991 9000 Turbo up for sale. With the birth of my first son it became clear that I have zero time to drive, enjoy and maintain 5 SAABs. Definitely a hard pill to swallow. I recently sold my 1993 900 Commemorative, which was painful enough, but another one must go. This is a fantastic car and I am still in love with the way it looks and drives. The 1991 9000 turbo has held a place in my heart since I was a kid and I bought this one for two reasons. It filled the hole left when my red 1991 9000T died in a crash 12 years ago and the previous owner was a SAAB nut who very meticulously maintained this and his other 1994 Aero.
I may never love anything as sweetly and as purely as this person loves their Saab. Whoever buys this thing, please cherish it.
