Free doesnt hurt either.
    Nice. I've owned a few of those over the years and loved em. Put some snows on the front and they're unstoppable. Super comfy seats. They take TONS of gear with the seats down too. Post up some pics.

    My parents have owned Saab for probably 20 years now. Good cars mostly. Harder to find parts and good mechanics these days but not impossible. Here in Utah snows for sure but my family living in Goshen NY and NJ mostly just drove her with all seasons.

    The seats are great. Super deep and plush. This ones pretty cherry.

    Will snap some pics. I'm jealous I only get to drive her on weekends as it's wifeys daily driver.

    Laugh ... but this is my dd.


    (not my pic, but basically my car)

    128K miles and I haven't needed to fix a darn thing. Still has the original plugs. Pulls like a train and is tight. The only downside is that the interior feels cheap. Just a great engine though (turbo 6 from Holden ... Australia).

    My dad just sold one after some body damage he didnt want to fix like that. Maroon though. 5 speed. 200k original turbo orig clutch. Despite what many possibly think they're fun pretty reliable cars. Slightly downhill when GM took over but still damned good.

    Back to the SAAB thing...we had three different 900's, those cars were awesome despite some oddities. An '86 900, an '89 900s, and a '93 900 turbo convertible (wife's car). Those cars were great no doubt.

    I know, right??? I need to slow down driving on those mountain roads when I can't see around a corner. Early on in my life I went through cars and I still get the "buy a new car to me" impulse on a regular basis.
    I love my V70R wagon, even if she is getting a little long in the tooth and want to try and make her last another 4 years. My wife has a sweet 335 with maybe 60k on it and the way she drives, it has about another 8 years on it. All that said, I think the next car will be for fun and will be something like this for the road trips I want to do.

    I remember the Saab 900s Turbos being stupid fast on the track, and unbeatable in the rain.

    I'm not quite there yet, but in a few years the wife and I will definitely be looking for a nice Sprinter van to tour the country in. Has to be winterized though

    When I think of what "fun car" I'd like to have it's always been a roadster of some type. I'm drawn to just about anything classic, but I've always liked the Mazda MX-5 / Miata, and now they've gone and made the "RF" targa option. Love it.

    ^that is a cool targa style.

    Family Saabs:

    1990 coupe, automagic, 0-60 in about 10 -15 seconds

    1987 red turbo coupe/hb 5 spd, dad's first fun car after having kids.

    1993 black limited turbo hb, 6spd on tan leather. Dad's 2nd fun car, handed down to me. Wish I could have a do over with it and keep it. Great car and a fun cruiser.

    1987 900 SPG manual, little brother's first car. Not as fast as the 93t or pretty, but still fun.

    ~1993 9000 aero 5spd, best highway cruiser of the lot. Less enjoyable in the twisties than the 900s, but enjoyed it.

    When I was in college at the U a boulder the size of a prius fell on Big Cottonwood. Learned then & there that shit falls on the road that will ruin your day, tread accordingly. Got the same revolving car problem, though now Ive finally got a 2 car situation that handles most needs.

    Thanks- it's been a garage queen it's whole life, which certainly defines it as my "fun car". 26 years old and it only has 106k miles on it, and still the original clutch which is surprising since probably 50k of those miles were either driving to or around a track. It's got M3 springs, huge sways, camber plates, offset bushings, ducted rotors, short shift (linkage from an E36 M3), supersprint exhaust, and the list goes on.

    I had an '85 325e four door 'commuter' that looked exactly like your two door, but got rid of it when it had 260K miles on it, and it caught on fire for the second time. Good times.

    Had a Viggen for about 80k miles.
    Short list of repairs: Engine rebuild, Transmission rebuild, wheel bearings, security alarm, etc...
    Still loved that car though. By the end I had installed a LSD and bumped up the power with a few bolt-ons. It was a sleeper on the highway and in the twistys.

    My parents had a '93 Saab 9000 turbo when I was a high school. I learned to drive on that car - its was quirky but fast with tons of turbo lag. I remember it being the fastest full size you could buy in 1993; they topped out at 155 mph with had no speed limiter. It wasn't terribly reliable but it was certainly sleeper car.

    Saab weren't near BMW, Audi or Merc in terms of performance but they made some cool, funky cars. I remember reading about the 9-3 Viggen and how its was exciting to drive for all the wrong reasons because the torque steer and turbo lag. Still a cool car.

    I drove my sisters 9-3 turbo cross-country at about 110mph. Good car, never let up.
