Hey guys.

My name is Tim from Chicago. About a week ago I purchased my first car. 2001 9-5 Aero. Its a 5 speed, and I had no idea how to drive stick before I got the car. So its been pretty fun learning. Also I plan on getting some mods after I get the driving part down.

Welcome aboard Tim! Car looks great.

I was in a similar situation when I drove home my Saab for the first time as well. The only experience I had driving stick besides a quick tutorial one night from my dad was on an old tractor at my high school job. Fortunately the gearbox on the Saab felt similar and I had no problems driving it home :lol:. (OK so it wasn't that bad...)

Enjoy the site, and your first Saab.
Welcome to the link Tim! Nice looking car, I hope you'll enjoy it :)
9-5 aero as your first car? You must be doing something right. Welcome aboard

Welcome to TSL and enjoy the ride. Great first car. Too many years ago, I did the same thing with a Toyota Corolla. Drove it off the lot not knowing how to drive a stick. Should have been a Saab. Great photos :D
welcome to the board Tim!

Enjoy the Saab!
Thanks everyone. I think I'm getting better at shifting.
Welcome to TSL! 9-5 Aero is a great car as long as you take care of it. Treat her well and you'll be set.

Haven't seen many 9-5 Aero's with manual gearboxes. Talk about a nice looking car! I love those things. Consider me jealous of your purchase (and find).

Enjoy that thing!
Welcome! Great find for your first car, I also have a manual '01 9-5 Aero and I love it.
