Subject: I bought it


I send mountains of thanks to everyone who responded to my post asking for opinions on buying a Saab. Thanks to all your advice, I bought it. A few details: the car is *really* high mileage at 287,000, but it turns out that the transmission problem wasn't (it's slightly embarrassing, but the gear placement wasn't what I'm used to, so I had trouble finding the gears, that's all). The oil appears to be leaking from a valve-cover gasket (so it's not really a problem). There seems to be a small electrical short somewhere; my father's hypothesis is that it's in the starter. Anyway, I go to complete the transaction (and paperwork) tomorrow evening. And I'm sure to be lurking here for a while, and I imagine I'll have some more questions sooner or later. Thanks again, all, for being such a helpful group. Tom R. treednopsamor.csustan.edu "It's too ridiculous!" cried Alice, losing all her patience this time.
