(Update Draken is sold. Thanks for the interest!) It has been a great year with the Draken, I really can’t say enough nice things about this car. It has never left me stranded…well…there was a time that the key snapped off in the door, but that was my fault and not the electromechanical failures you’d […]
Many Saab enthusiasts have called and talked with me about buying the Draken, but none have pulled the trigger on a purchase. Time for a price drop — now asking $3000 for this 1978 Saab 99 EMS– click here for the details.

When we had last left the Draken, it had come home with me and it still needed a few things fixed before it could be used on a regular basis. First and foremost was the a malfunctioning blinker/hazard light system and second was the noxious odors of gasoline whenever the the Draken was topped up […]
Another day, another Daily Turismo Project Car — time to introduce everyone to Draken (Dragon in Swedish). I decided it was time to pick up something inexpensive to use as a part time driver while fixing up a few of my other cars. The criteria was simple, just a car that has seating for two […]
If you’ve paid close attention to the posts on this site, you may have seen a failed attempt for this writer to pick up a classic Citroën DS wagon — it didn’t work out and I still harbor homicidal feelings towards the low down son-of-a-gun who bought that from under me…ANYWAY…I am still in the […]
