    Auto Detailing & Body Repairs
    My ‘02 Saab has been sitting for the summer. Went to get it inspected and the roof malfunctioned is stuck open at the rear. When I tried to start it later the battery was dead- then the hood cable snapped. I love my Saab and want to keep it and have a grocery list of work to be done. So I am...

    C900 Projects
    I recently managed to get approval to revive my father's C900. I've been waiting years and I finally am getting to start! ;ol; This car has been sitting for approximately 12 years, so this will be one heck of a project! So starting off, we had to drain out the fuel tank. There was only about a...
  3. Just got me this!

  6. SiS gas cap?

    C900 Workshop
    I know this is a frivolous question but I have OCD and it's bothering me: What type of gas cap did SAAB install on the 288 "Springtime in Sweden" edition convertibles imported to the U.S. in 1988? I just bought one and it has a locking gas cap on it I'm guessing was added by a prior owner...
