picked up another craigslist find

I'm always browsing craigslist for cheap saabs. I found myself a '98 900s convertible with a bad clutch that I was able to pick up for $700.

the plan is to convert to t5 and build a b234r out of it. I've already ordered a viggen clutch kit and I will most likely put a 19t on it.

there is a little rust, but overall it is a fairly clean car for being in upstate NY all of its life

Small update

I'm waiting for the weather to warm up to start working on the car, but I have a t5 harness on the way and I was also able to score a king cobra td04 from an '06 9-5 aero on eBay.

I won't be doing a 19t this year. Just planning on going to a basic stg 3 tune.

I can't wait for all the snow to melt.

Saw a Saab in that color the other day while I was out & about. I would love to find one. That's a good deal, keep us updated on the build!
