1700 miles in a £200 car in 3 weeks

By NiallOswald

Filed under: 1988 Saab 9000 Turbo 16 (The Scaab)

Can be done quite happily. Didn't miss a beat other than losing the wastegate actuator rod a couple of times, started every time, comfortable, quick, reasonably economical.

Bangernomics FTW, and that's 1700 miles that isn't on the odo of my Focus to boot. Bit of a drop in its 95000 mile ocean, but never mind.

Now sold to some people who are intending on doing 1400 miles in 3 days with it. I wish them luck, but have every confidence in the car!
