Getting parts is easier than I expected when I jumped back into vintage Saabs after losing my last one in a hurricane in 1989. Sometimes, it can be a little white-knuckle, but I'm finding the hunt to be entertaining and, almost always, educational. Apart from a few things I bother with myself on my 9-5 Aero, I open the hood otherwise, look at the engine compartment, and then immediately close the damn thing. On the 96, what you see is what you've got. There's nothing you can't do short of a professional rebuild, and to avoid that, go easy on your gearbox. Stay out of the salt, and enjoy it.
