Autos can be nice drag cars, look at the grand national, those were all autos.

I'll stay where I am, though, as much of a money pit as they can be.

Dont drag it

Saab transmissions are nitoriously fragile. Especially automatics. They arent crappy, They just need to be looked out for. Especially on turbo cars.

900 Turbo. What a great drift car!


Just remember you have to manually clear the wastegate on the turbo. Please don't ask me how I know that. I'm blocking out that part of my memory (Saab ownership/maintenence) at the moment.
