Looks like I won't be getting a 99
 
So it looks like I will have another 99 shortly. My intention with this one is to drop the turbo motor in from my quite rusty 78 99-T shell and junk that. Should be interesting being that it's the same color & year, with a hatch - however a 5 door rather than a 3 door.

Also, power steering and A/C, neither of which my rusty 99-T has. For the sake of originality I'd totally destroy it, however it should be a damn nice driver when I'm done. Perhaps modern fuel injection, an electronic water pump, and a normal turbo will work it's way in the mix adding to the reliability. I also have a freshly rebuilt 99 P/S rack that I should be able to drop right in.

Nice find, Delorean! Jealous!

I almost bought that car on Saabnet a few months ago. Gary Stottler and I were going to put his spare turbo motor and manual transmission in it.

Similar thinking, eh? ;) The 4 speed from the 99-T is going in too.

Nice find. One of these days I'll find the pics of my '79 99. I really miss that car.

SaabDriver87 08-20-2009 07:30 PM

Indeed, my boss even showed this to me today on ebay, and I can't tell how much restraint it took to not sign in and bid lol.

PaulH 08-20-2009 07:47 PM

I was pissed when we missed bidding on it last time, pretty lucky that it got relisted! Should make for a fun couch hauler when its done :lol:.

Aw come on. Those wheels and huge mud flaps are way cool. I'd love to have space for that car.

So you can watch time pass as you run the 1/4 mile.*

adidas_007 08-20-2009 10:51 PM

Very Nice

Saabeh 08-20-2009 11:41 PM

Clean car, but not too good looking?

Powar 08-21-2009 05:14 AM

That is a very nice 99. I watched the auction both times but only bid the first time around. It's hard to believe that it went so cheap.

mcrowley 08-21-2009 05:22 AM

I like it!

JK 08-21-2009 05:24 AM

Nice car! I'd be happy to have one of those for sure.

Jack Straw 08-21-2009 05:31 AM

Nothing says, "I might be a communist" like a 5 door 99.

Looks great!

Sedan 08-21-2009 06:04 AM

Wow, nice find! 5-door 99s are great and rather rare, especially a GLE.

saabsbreakdown 08-21-2009 12:59 PM

5 door FTMFW

you can put garbage cans in the back doors and stand them up.
