Bought myself an executive barge today :cheesy:

Lovely car at a very fair price from a nice guy! :cool: Some of you may recognise this one, a 1993 9000 CSE.

More (of my own) pics after the weekend when I return from Kodak (in the Carly!).

Very nice! I like the color. What are the specs on her (motor,gearbox,odo. reading...)?

Strange enough, what you Brits call a barge is called a "small car" here. I was told this while fueling up next to a Ford Expedition :roll:.

It is a 2 litre injection, N/A. 5 speed manual, air con, electric everything (and all works :cheesy: ). Barely run in with 196,400 miles on her, I have done 150 today!


Drives like a 96,400 miler. Very tight and surprisingly quick for such a heavy car with a N/A 2.0 litre.

Turbo or not, saab has some really good engines and perfect gearing. Very nice car.

Welcome to the club TFC. Now that you've made the initial jump, soon you'll be scouring the market for an Aero and making calls to Maptun!

I was sorry to see her go, but i have had a clear out and got rid of 3 of the 9000's and the merc 190, now i will have to build the fleet up again :cheesy: , the drive is looking kind of empty with only the 2 9000's in it.
That cse was the fastest 9000i i have ever driven, it gave a few cars a fright, when it got going, including a few LPT's, have fun TFatC :D .

Well after seeing the hasle taking the head off the 9000 engine I think I will swerve the 9000. Stick to the cavernous 900 engine bay :cool: . Still a damn good buy though Nick. Im sure you will soon get it up to the 250,000 mile mark.
