Farewell my friends. I've enjoyed driving my second and most likely last Saab, a 2002 9-3 con, 98000 miles, for almost 6 years. This weekend it started making a rattle noise. Got it home then tried to restart and the engine wouldn't budge. Had it towed and the diagnosis is siezed engine. I was a meticulos Mobile 1, 5000 miles, changer. Dropped the oil pan when the clutch was repaired 15K ago (clean). I just don't see myself shelling out $4000 - $8000 to put a used engine into a 10 year old car. Not sure what I'll do with the remains. Probably tow it back home and post for sale as a parter for a while, and if it doesn't go, donate (unless I can think of something else). Thanks for all the help you've given me over the years on this site. Good luck with your beautiful classics.
