Hi folks... I'm considering buying an '84 Saab 900 Sport, but I'm having difficulty figuring out exactly which model this is, as none of the Saab sites I've found list a 900 Sport for 1984. Does it sound familiar to anyone? It's a 5-speed, 3-dr hatch, not sure which engine, but the odo reads 289,000km (kinda high but I understand Saab's are pretty long-lived). The asking price is $500 (Canadian)... the exterior is not without blemishes, but is generally in very good condition for a 20-year old car. The interior shows more wear, but again, not bad at all for 2 decades. Mechanically (I haven't had a chance to check it out yet) the seller claims all is in good condition except for a vaccum-leak somewhere which he's not inclined to spend the money to fix, causing uneven idling. I've never owned a Saab before, but have always wanted to. Opinions? Cheers, Wade
