always liked the look of those cars, especially the convertable with the real wood trim. It has always had a classic look without looking too stuffy.

Saab made really bland cars that only appealed to a very small demographic. They were fairly popular in the 80's. The 900 convertible was the de facto yuppie car for some odd reason. But after that, no one really cared.
The only Saab worth buying in recent times is the 92-X. Which is really a re-badged Subaru Impreza/WRX. I heard the resale value on the 92-X Aero is horrible. If you can find a used one in good condition for cheap, buy it. It's a fun car to drive. AWD, turbo powered. It's great for all weather driving. And there are lots of aftermarket performance parts for the WRX that fit the 92-X as well.
offshore saidHow did GM screw Saab you say? They took theefficient and powerful 2.0 turbo charged engine developed BY Saab, and dropped it in a Chevy Cobolt and gave Saab the shitter old version in their own cars.
Saab is the totally unloved step child, super talented and got so much potential, but always looked down, abused and starved by the horrid parents.
I have owned 4 Saabs .....Most of the nay sayers haven't driven one or don't 'get' them. it's gone. I can't believe it!...
