I was limited to 24 pics on the listing, not enough to show the true beauty of this amazing 23 year old car.

    Does anyone know this Saab? Is it better with all the modifications or should they be kept factory original?

    That car is sex - pure adulterated SEX. I like trolling around that car @ Carlisle. It's got old school Group9 shit.

    I don't really like it all that much. Some of the modifications, like the group9 stuff (very well designed and made, I've had a whole kit of that stuff in my hands before) and the vent in front of the fender, I think are tasteful. But the red interior accents and the stripe up the hood make it seem too molested for my tastes. Of course he gives the excuse that it has been crashed. But why not restore it to the way it was? Or even better, put a flat-nose on it?

    Also, why would you want to remove the cruise control, air conditioning, antenna, and air bags? It's just as much work to maintain them as it is to delete them.

    I'm not a fan on the black on the hood either, and the interior should not be red, but overall it is a very nice car.

    One of my favorite C900s aside from
    John William's Pearl White SPG or that MCY '91 900 SE with 56k.

    It's Todd Campisano's. And I believe he is selling it.

    euromobile900, I've just been made aware of this page & have seen the comments regarding my SPG. So you know, I removed the cruise, A/C, auto antenna & airbags because I used to run my SPG on the track & finding ways to save weight was important to me. I am a person who always looks for new ways to try to keep changes to the Saabs I modify tasteful & not over the top. At the end of the day to each their own.
