How many ponies do you think Nice Price or Crack Pipe Saab is claimed to rock around 350 horses and is FWD. Let’s see if that’s over the limit and whether its price is too.
There are a handful of vehicles that, if properly maintained, should last… well, nigh-on forever. Old Volvos, Mercedes W123s, Toyota Hilux trucks… they all seem invincible.
You could likely add last Friday’s 1993 Dodge D250 Club Cab among that list of god-like cars and trucks. That’s a model of simplicity and durability right there. And, with its torque-forward Cummins 12V six it should prove adept at towing small planets and other necessities as well
Speaking of hauling, who here doesn’t like hauling ass? That’s what I thought. When it comes down to putting the pedal down, al
Here we have a 2007 Saab 9-3 SportCombi that, based on its ad’s description at least, should impress when that loud pedal is pressed.

There’s still plenty of opportunity to turn a wrench if you’re into such things, but unlike my curmudgeonly cohorts of old, I really like the ease with which extra power can be found and applied.
I also like how that’s been done on this Combi Saab. If you’re also on
That being said, this seems not only to be a good car but one that’s had some tasty mods that should keep it competitive with its more modern—and expensive—challengers. With that in mind, what do you think of this horse-heavy Saab and that $4,700 asking? Is that a deal for a nice Combi with benefits? Or, is this 9-3 priced as high as its ponies?
