Mechanic Owned Classic: 1986 Saab 900 Wagonback

You might be a Saab driver if: You’ve paid more in maintenance in the past year than the car is worth. You’ve had to remove windshield wipers to replace an alternator. You’ve had to drive in the day with your lights on and in the night with your lights off…and it wasn’t by choice. You look forward to snowy days so that your car can keep up with traffic. You can “spin” a fuse while blindfolded. Find this 1986 Saab 900 Wagonback offered for $6999 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist.
