I knew that.. hence why I said it in case anybody else didn't know lol

I need a DD and while vettes are ok and real fast for 'cheap' I still do not want

I still want one of these.



I think it'd be the closest you could get to driving an OG mini on the track without driving an OG mini

saabs are neat in general.

also this is looking epic for autox's and track days... adding a highly accurate bluetooth gps unit would make it even more useful. and so cheap!

and this is awesome, and free!!! (for short videos like we use for autox)

Interesting.

The one I posted was $600 and had basically 250k miles on it so I didn't really want it anyway but it was cheap lol.. and it had a 2.0 with a turbo and the timing chain was up to date too so it theory it should run for a while once the other items that needed addressing were complete. Was just curious as to what others though of that car as a whole in general
