    The car is depending on you! Feed it well and it will reward you as a once (or twice) in a lifetime experience of driving a Saab. Glad you didn't miss the opportunity!

    AC=acceleration control! Push it and the car slows? I was the other way around. It was hot. AC was turned on. Push the AC off in times of need and that was my "turbo"! Rocket out of danger.

    The original 900 (circa 1981-1992 or so) was great for upgrading. I had a base 900 (in some countries sold as the 900i, 900GLS, etc.).

    mention that you'll take care of the car rather than someone who got it from a charity who will run the car into the ground.
