Pile o' Receipts: 1993 Saab 900

How often do you find a one owner car from the early 1990s?-- it isn't common for people to keep a car that long...except maybe rotting in a field or in some pigeon filled barn.  And few people have the endurance to own something like a 90s Saab for 3 decades because those receipts are gonna be piled up AND not cheap.  But if you want to buy one, this next car looks like the one to get. Find this 1993 Saab 900 offered for $5795 in Indianapolis, IN via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

I am selling my Classic 1992 Saab 900 that I purchased new in 1992. As the original owner I have kept impeccable maintenance records since day one. As you can see from the photos, I have all the documentation to support that claim including the full set of books and keys. I paid for a detailed professional appraisal a few years ago. I am a very meticulous person when it comes to care and maintenance. If the car ever needed anything, I spared no expense in having it addressed in a timely manner. All service work since the car was purchased was done at Indy Saab and Road Tested Saab. In addition, the vehicle has always been garaged, lady driven, and I am a non-smoker. The only reason I am selling the vehicle is we're downsizing to a home with only a two-car garage. The vehicle drives wonderful and is very clean inside and out especially for the age. There is an abundance of things that have been done to the car that can’t be listed here but rest assured that the car is in excellent condition. Feel free to look at every service record for your peace-of-mind. Serious inquiries only please.

 See a better way to drive a strange Swedish beast?


  1. That lady has way too much time on her hands or has O.C.D..

  2. Saab's are cheap here in the PNW most are cheap with lot's of problems and year's of neglected up-keep....But do like them in a strange way GM did not help the brand 4 sure.

  3. Too bad its a slicktop but kudos to the owner...the kind of folks I like to buy cars from!
