Subject: Re: Interested in buying 89 Saab 900s, have a few questions

you may want to check the one of the blue book sites for the average cost of the car first. from there..and no offense, but an 89 for about $850 (i'm in the US also) sounds a little too low if you want it to get a few good years out of it with minimal repairs. for the search i did (assuming you lived in my zip code) retail from dealer suggested cost is about $3000....also assuming it's manual transmission. you may want to have the car checked out by a reliable mechanic prior to purchase. our first SAAB purchase, although we considered it a good deal at the time, included and investment of about $2000 to get the car to what i consider to be perfect shape, but that's just me. we had to have the air conditioning replaced and a few other things. hope that's helped Julie Scott Morford <> wrote in message news:PBbw4.237$ > So I'm a poor college student looking for some wheels.
