Well, if I saw oil dripping all over like Trent did, I'd probably stay away from it... However, I must say I had a 1980 Saab 900 GLi that I drove nearly to 200,000 miles and the only thing that NEVER game me any trouble at all was the engine. Always ran like a top. It was the rest of the car that started falling apart first ;) Loved the car to death though... Even at 200,000, the engine was still as smooth & as strong as the day I got it. Aaron
