Goodness gracious that is dark. I've heard pa cops can be pretty harsh on tint too.

Nice whip!

So my love of saabs started with an 88 900 8v automatic, picked it up for 400$. The guy said it sat for 4-5 years and it was literly black. Took her home and washed her turned out she was white, it ran like a dream after a minor tune up. I had that one for about 2 years and then I found my current baby. I went for a 2 hour road trip to go check her out and I fell in love she was an 88 5spd 900 8v with the air flow body kit. I took her for a spin and found out her problem, she was scary to drive. Bucked like crazy and smoked fairly well, after deciding it wasn't safe to drive her bck I negotiated that hed deliver her in 2 weeks when he got back from vacation. After the very long 2 weeks I got a cal saying he was on his was. When I saw him coming down the road I was so happy. We did the transction she was 1000$ but well worth it. I took her for a drive around the block and found out her problen got worse from the trip, a lot worse. She was smoking so bd you would not believe it it was massive it was literaly a smoke screen it was so thick it was sticking to the ground. After giving her a well deserved bath full detail nd all she went into my garage and so it begins...

They can be but where I live they don't care to much they are more concerned about drunk drivers. I live in the middle of nowhere Which is sweet

we had thought that she might have had a crcked block. The guy said he bought it from an enthusiest (big mistake for that guy) I checked the fluids and the was no coolant he said he had never touched it cause he never checked it. What a jerk.. my original plan was to swap the engine from my automatic if the block was cracked. So I get to tearing her down. I get the head removed and first check the block, nothing then I look at the head gasket

Turns out it had a major crack where the timing chain is so it was dumping massive amounts of oil Into the first cylinder

It took about a month to get it all torn apart, long story, but finally I have found the problem. I go out get a new head gasket and with in a week she is back together running beautifully 200,000 miles and the egine runs like new again

I also painted the gas flap black because I decided to go with a black and white theme for now. Next was the bumpers, they were was spider cracked and the chrom was all ugly

im loving the build.

great choice in black rims (and black everything) on a white 900. Ive been looking for a relatively cheap white 900 for a minute now with no good luck. Keep up work and posts. (let me know if you ever want to sell haha)
