Dulles International Airport in Virginia has auctioned off their 1990 Saab 900 Turbo that had only 14,909 miles on it for $16,335 USD!

This friction tester like so many others such as Albany,NY, Burlington, Vermont has been in service for years and will hopefully be replaced with another more modern Saab 9-5 Friction tester like the one that Boston, Massachusetts has.

I hope that the lucky bidder finds themselves enjoying this fine piece of machinery with so much life left to it, because they certainly paid a pretty penny for it and it may be one of the most expensive classic 900 purchases in recent years.

For more information and photos of it, please visit the auction website directly while it’s available.

    The transaction was not completed. The winning bidder/buyer backed out. Dulles shopped the car to other airports for sale. It did not go into private hands.

    I was the second-place bidder and offer terms could not be agreed upon, hence the disposition of the vehicle.
