q's for 99 guys

i am currently clearing some land for a friend and there are some old saabs out there (96&99's) rusted into the ground but i see some good lenses, grilles, trim and stuff like that maybe some other parts to but i am just wondering if there are any specific parts worth pulling before they get shredded over the next few weeks.

99:

Windshields and the rubber mounting trim for them if any are good.

Any of the unusual desireable wheels, like the Shelby, Soccerball, or maybe Inca designs.

The 4-speed transmissions are desireable if they're good, but you have no way of knowing if they are good - the later ones are the ones to get, like '74-'78.

Some of the European and Australian guys pay good money for headlamp / surround / grill combos to convert their Euro nosed cars to the US twin-headlamp front end, but that's hit or miss.

Tachs out of the clusters, a lot of US lower trim cars have the big clocks instead.


96:

Unless it's a two-stroke I don't know a ton, seems like the people who are into them all have stockpiles, but would be worth asking like on SaabNet or the VSAAB mailing list if anyone is looking for anything, there's only like a dozen people on this forum with 'two-digit' SAABs.

If there are any model 93 cars those could be valuable almost regardless of how bad the corrosion is.

For 96's there is a need for grills, all glass esspecialy the back glass, lenses, badging and doors if in desent shape.
