Thanks for the insight and advice. I wish I was able to do more my own repairs, but mostly limited to simple things like oil and different kinds of filter changes etc. I was thinking of taking on the heater core because that looks almost manageable but don't have a garage to do it in.
I really think the car has a lot of life left in it- the body looks great, engine pulls strong and it goes down the road as well as ever. Definitely not ready for the yard or to be parted out. Just don't have the time or budget to give it what it deserves I am afraid.
I will take it on road trip to cape cod to see my most trusted saab mechanic up there and get his opinion. I live in NYC area and if anyone in the area or up in southeast MA (or anywhere really) wants to take on a classic '98 9000 (silver)- maybe we should talk- would like to see it go to another fanatic like me. Thanks everyone-
