Temptation

A blue-on-tan Saab 9-3 with a manual for $2000. It’s probably rusted to death underneath, but still... so pretty.

The Air Force is getting some Saabs! The Air Force is getting some Saabs!

More specifically, they have awarded $9.2B (and probably a lot more to come) to the Boeing/Saab team to develop and build new trainers to replace the long-serving T-38. The main competitor was the Lockheed/KAI T-50, which was a more mature choice. The Boeing/Saab T-X was purpose-built for this competition.

I’ve been tossing around the idea of selling my turbo beetle and buying something with the equity I have in it so that I don’t have a monthly payment.

Dragging parts of the Saab home to play with. Had some cheapo Cibie-knock-off headlamps and some yellow bulb “balloons” to replace the broken sealed beams with.

Saabillac! Saabillac!

You don’t see these very often, and you won’t be seeing this one again. After just twelve years, it’s made its last journey and is awaiting its fate. No obvious damage so I guess a combination of low value and lack of parts saw it off.
