: : : Why the Saab went Straight.
Saabs marketing today is based on "you know you are going to crash, and this car will protect you."
This was one major reason I decided not to get another. I've had a 1980 99 and I currently have a 1985 900. Even by 1985 Saab's focus had changed from producing an "enthusiast's car".
After having owned a 320 for a short while and having driven a friend's E36 I knew what my next car would be :-)
: These comments mainly apply to the 93/95 series. Some of the big Turbo's are ok cars, and the old time Saabs were a blast to drive. If you see a person in a 93/95 series car, stay away from them.
I used to love my 99 until a drunk driver decided I was better off without it. I tried to get my hands on a Sonnet as a project car but this turned out to be nearly impossible.
