10k: Vadered Out: 1973 Saab Sonett Custom

If you’ve been following the news recently, you may have read that Jake Lloyd, the actor who played young Anakin Skywalker in that terrible Star Wars prequel, was involved in a high speed chase that ended in a car crash and incarceration.  The problem was that Lloyd was driving a Nissan Maxima, a great car for a family, but terrible for police chase, even if you are a budding young Sith Lord.  If Ani needs to evade the Jedi peacekeepers in the future, he should get this 1973 Saab Sonett Custom offered here on eBay for $10,000 buy-it-now, located in Woodinville, WA.  Tip from Robert.

Vader may have portrayed an all business, death-all-day-long persona, but on the inside, he was quite the fashion conscious socialite.  Why else would he deal with helmet hair, platform heels, fumes from codpiece polish, and getting his cape stuck in automatically closing blast doors?  ‘Cause it made him look like a boss and feel great about his mangled body.  This Sonett captures the Vader essence, mostly matte grey/black with just a hint of color up front.

Under the hood, you will find some serious cash from the builder; this thing has a ported and polished V4 engine with a high lift cam, and some serious billet bling. It might not be the most powerful thing in your local spaceport, but it looks like a million credits. 

The attention to fine detail and craftsmanship continues on the inside, were the pilot is treated to a custom dash, complete with big red airplane style covered switches and lots of other custom trinkets.
