You're aware that Saab used those kinds of stripes on the 99 turbo, right? :lol:

If he was really dedicated, he should go back to 114,3 bolt pattern hubs and mount some football or Inca wheels.

Oh I'm fully aware. In fact these are patterned on exactly those stripes, and since "Turbo" is a lower trim than "Aero" on the 9000, it's technically not ricing! :mrgreen:

Incas would look so sweet on the 9000, it's too bad they're not available as 16s.

Humbling? Stripes are now in the mail and on their way. I'm excited to see how they turn out.

I've been trying to figure out what my cars have in common. So far, I've found the following:

-DOHC 4 valves per cylinder
-Coil-on-plug ignition
-Fuel injected
-Timing chain
-Premium fuel

Not much else comes to mind.

I expect these stripes are going to be a challenge to put on properly.

...and now with them installed, it has abandoned any pretense of being a sleeper.

I would, but I enjoy my rear visibility too much; the tail doesn't extend down far enough for a ducktail. I was thinking Sierra-style biplane, but that'd be tricky to attach.
