I got one I am driving right now. Its a 1999 95 Wagon with 215K miles on it. Great car all around, we have had it forever since 65K miles. The kids couldn't kill this one. The worse thing about Saabs is the wheels. They are like butter and always bend. The best thing you can do is put steel wheels on them.

My son Eric bought a 2006 93 combi wagon with the 6speed manual. Its a rocket ship with the Aero Turbo. He paid 10K for it I think. Smaller then the 95.

I have a 95 Areo sedan 2001. Its pretty low to the ground but I do like the handling. Mine has a transmission issue so I really can't drive it like I should be able to. IT pops out of gear if you horse it. I have been milking it the last two summers. One of these days I will put a transmission in it.

The later Saabs have different engines, Erics 2006 has a four cylinder which has the exhaust on the back of the block. Still a 2 liter just a GM engine not a Saab.

Well look at this, Plow Winch and 4 wheel drive for 3000. Do I want to piss my wife off or what?

just think of all the roadkill you could put in the back.

My wife said go for it. We could strike a deal with Colton Enterprises in Pittsfield and haul firewood to Killington and Rutland on our daily commute. Maybe work out a deal with the appliance dealers in Rutland and deliver appliances to the Rochester area. Pocket a little cash in both directions. Even do some plowing every once in a while.

dont forget about the roadkill aspect, hell you could even create some. If you hit them right with that plow you could get them to go right over the cab and in to the back. just imagine.

Bob, that vehicle is not a wise investment unless you are going to resell.

I didn't want it for investment purposes. IT was more a driveway plow yard truck. I would never register it. Just attempting to cut my plow time down and have something to haul wood with. I was looking for a plow for my Chevy truck but a whole used set up is around 2000 bucks. I also was looking for a woods trailer. These are in the 4-600 range and go quick. Seems like the Dodge takes care of those needs and takes some pressure off the tractor. Its nice to have options.

I am on the fence. I think I will go dump some brake fluid in the Dodge and see where it leaks out. I drove it around. Cracked Exhaust manifold and no hydrolic brakes seem to be the worse issues. ITs a 24 volt system, 6 cylinder engine gas, 4sp hi/lo range. Very spartan, like  a bulldozer with a roof. 9 leaf springs on each rear wheel. Must be a 1.5 ton chassis. Truly massive drive line components. Ebrake on the drive shaft that works. Its a beast.

$3000 dollars for that! 24 volt system with hydraulic brake issues? I'm with Stan on this one, Bob.... seems like a lot of money for a lot of heartache! Just sayin....

Another Deer Season? Really I thought Bow already happened. I almost hit a 6 pointer tonight. It was that close that I could count the horns. He was crossing the Huntington road just past the Sleepy hollow road turn going south. I missed him by a couple feet on a curve. Scared me too, I have not seen a deer in the head lights for a while. I am at 4 collisions for 24 years of commuting through Deer country.

I have been waiting for a fresh road kill. I have my wagon and a tarp/gloves ready. I believe I am not alone because I have not seen one on my commuting route. Years back there would be a deer every few days on the side of the road. I am thinking people are taking them as soon as they are hit these days.

The 1 last night was hit just minutes before I saw it. I call the state police and they had just gotten a call. The officer said the law is person hitting it gets first dibs and then its free game...get it free game! She wasn't very big but Erik and I cut it up more for practice than anything I slept most of today and processed the meat today. Anybody that puts me on to a harvest I'll share the bounty.

That means you have an "in" at Burling in March! Not that we wouldn't have invited you anyway! Lol! You wanted a deer and you got one, even though it came in an unanticipated form. Funny how things work out sometimes. That buckslayer guy knows how to eat!
