Saab 2-stroke barn find
This car had been stored in a barn for nearly 30 years when I found it, and with good help from my son and a friend organized a rescue operation in the August 2012. Here is what happened that sunny day south-east in Norway.
2000 Saab 9-3 2.0 Turbo Start Up, Engine, and Full Tour
In this video I give a full in depth review and tour on a 2000 Saab 9-3 hatchback. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine, start it up, and give a short drive and the details of it. A through review of this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2000 Saab 9-3 Hatchback 2.0T First Test Drive
Well I'm pretty behind on my videos, I still have lamborghini videos to upload as well as some more auction videos (I'm also going back tomorrow!!), updated lot vehicles (including a tour on this car) and the night starts for the lot PHEW! But I figured I'd jump ahead and give you all a test drive of our new Saab we just got for old times sakes. It's a long test drive video but I just love this car, one of the nicest we've had in a while, not often you come across a gem like this with 106k on the odo. This 9-3 has the 2.0T 4cyl engine (same as the one in my first car, the 97 900SE convertible. Wait till you see the full tour video!!
Cold Start 2000 Saab 9-3 2.0T Hatchback
This car has actually sold I believe, a little bit after making this video. I've had a lot of you all wanting me to do some more cold starts so I figured I'd make a bunch of short videos and put them up this weekend so you can see some of the stuff still at the dealership. Think of this as dealership cold starts just separately because I wanted each vehicle to have a few min instead of blaze through them real fast. This is the 2000 Saab 9-3 hatchback with the 2.0T engine. I do a quick cold start after a snow/ice storm that left thousands of people without power in the NC piedmont triad (we lost power too lol, which was why I was at the dealership) I also show the engine and the car's weatherband function. Enjoy!
