Pics in the ad seem to be 10 years old. Everything is probably tbe same except add 2 inches of dust and some rodent nests.

I suspect it's a case of not knowing how to set the date on the camera.

Yup.

Those cars aren't worth a ton of money, but that still looks like great deal.

In reply to 93EXCivic:

Then it's likely 100% bondo. Where is he hiding all the glass?

The location being in Iowa means that there are not many Saab lovers nearby hence the low price to atract a buyer from further away.

The body is all fiberglass but the "frame" is steel and can rust. I know a vintage racer who runs one in the midwest. It's very quick! My nephew bought one years ago for $1700 and broke the trans a month later. The car sat for 4-5 years when he ended up selling it to the racer for $400 as a parts car.
