My father had a 9000 turbo when i was young. My brother bought a used 9000 turbo in highschool. So when i had a bit of money I bought a black 9000 aero manual after boot camp, drove it for years until it needed a new clutch. I think I sold it for $400, wish i could take that one back. I bought another 9000 years later as a beater for a while and gave it to my little brother who sold it running to the junkyard after buying a new car. Fast forward 15yrs later and now own a c900 and just bought another 9000, both turbo Manuals. Both need some work, but looking forward to getting under the hood.
