“Han Solo once said of the Millennium Falcon, “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid…”, and the same is true of this classic Saab 900 SPG.”
That’s one of dozens of stellar lines in the homemade ad below, a truly astonishing collage posted to Craigslist by “Zoltar” – owner of fantastic Saab 900 Turbo SPG.
Usually car ads on Craigslist are pretty simple with your average or no description of the car and some images, mostly photographs are very bad and do not show the thing in the right condition – nothing really that special. Unless of course you’ve come across this Craigslists ad:
This ad is amazing! Just read the description and you too will be hooked….of course, if at least you love the Saab cars.
Han Solo once said of the Millennium Falcon, “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid…”, and the same is true of this classic Saab 900 SPG. While it may not do the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs, this fine example of Swedish engineering will send you into fits of pure and unbridled joy every time you get behind the wheel.
The transmission shifts smoother than a fresh jar o’ Skippy, the turbo spools up like a jet turbine, and the suspension will keep you firmly planted as whip through corners like the unholy love-child of Chuck Yeager and Ayrton Senna.
Aero wheels and hatchback louvers give a nod to this machine’s rally heritage, and the raspy jungle-cat roar of the exhaust serves as a reminder that you are indeed piloting a sports car. Now, on the rare occasion that you find yourself tired of the glorious purr of the exhaust, you can drown it out with a stereo that bumps hard enough to fry your grand-pappy’s hearing aids.
This vehicle is also a fantastic means of transportation for the Pacific Northwest. It plows through ice and snow like a sherpa on cocaine, and the heater will roast you medium rare if you get too close. The rear seats fold down, providing enough room to haul a tricycle, a family of badgers, an MG-42 machine gun with 5,000 rounds, and three boxes of General Tso’s chicken takeout.
I will also include a pint of fresh badger’s milk with the sale. Obviously, this car is damn near 30 years old, and it is far from perfect, but it’s reliable and it’s not the least bit boring. You could certainly take 3,000 of your hardest-earned dollars and buy a Toyota Camry or a Honda Civic…
But then you’d be a simpleton and a fool. Do yourself a favor and purchase this bold badger of a machine, your future self will thank you.
This ad for a car may not be the best car ad you’ve ever seen on Craigslist, but the advertisement is really unusual and well-designed.
