Overall in very good condition, but Bosch fuel computer went out about 5 years ago and no replacements. So, gradually converting it to megasquirt electronic injection.


Car was purchase as gift to myself upon graduation from college. Drove it as a daily car for the first few years, and then used it more for special occasions as it got older. In 2000, my son and I used it to compete in SCCA autocross and club trials events, winning multiple championships in our region for its class (G-Stock). The car may be sold/traded to another SCCA competitor in the near future as it has become more and more of interest as SAAB has closed its doors and it is a unique example of a performance car for that era.
