Welcome to the Sunday Edition of Hooniverse Weekends. Let’s start out with a couple of cars that were found while I was cruising around on the net for no apparent reason. There are many treasures that this particular dealer has, and we will dive into them during the week. Let’s discover these two sporty, interesting cars that are offered for sale in the middle of Wisconsin.
A 1992 Saab 900 convertible isn’t really all that rare, or all that interesting, especially when it isn’t a turbo. There has been a lot of work done to this particular car in the form of converting it to a five-speed manual. According to the listing:
Extremely nice grey non-turbo convertible with black top, this car has never been driven in the winter. Converted to a five speed manual, shifts smoothly and runs strong. No leaks or Issues. Excellent unfaded original paint. No crash damage. Underbody is clean, looks like a two year old car, not 18.
Very nice black leather interior. Top boot covers, Two tool kits, Owner’s manual. Dome light does not work. Everything else is OK. Used less than 1 quart to an oil change. I drove the car all last summer, I’m selling it for college money. It is in my father’s name and he has a dealer’s license so car has a clear WI title and DOT inspection.
Yes, the rims are the only glaring issue with this car, but that can be corrected. Asking price for this car is $4,000. See the listing here.
If the Saab doesn’t light your fire, how about an Alfa Romeo GTV-6? This Alfa is a 1984 model year, with a 2.5L SOHC V-6, a 5-speed transaxle, and looks like it has been well taken care of. According to the listing:
This is a 104,xxx mile matching number, never crashed, California car. The car looks stock including the original style Pirelli P6 tires. This car has been mildly modified for increased performance.
It is very streetable, not too aggressive. It has been recently repainted. The original paint was faded and peeling from the sun, especially on the roof. he car has an extremely nice original black leather interior. There is a small repair, nicely done, to the driver’s seat bolster. The car is extremely clean with all the trim in very nice condition. Not only has the car just been repainted, the bottom has a fresh coat of chassis black paint, engine has a new timing belt and a Sta-belt manual tensioner. Transmission has been rebuilt including driveline donuts. It has new brake pads and rotors. Rebuilt rear calipers. New hatch strut. The A/C does not work. Everything else works. In general, this is an excellent driver. It’s the right year, the right color and all the right toys.
Asking price for this GTV-6 is $7,500. Is this car worth the price? See the original listing here.
