    I have not. However, a sad thing about modern cars is that it is harder to modify cars. In the early 1990's, it was easy to replace your car radio. Now, it is impractical. Funny things can happen if...

    GM is discontinuing Holden (Australia)

    GM looks to the big markets, not the small. I believe that's why they killed Saab. (One could say that Saab was dying before GM, though).

    GM announced today (yesterday?) that they are...

    Answer: Cape Agulhas, South Africa. Monument marks the southern tip of Africa. I thought it was Africa because I wouldn't expect a map of Africa in South America or Europe.

    I heard that the water...

    Oh my! I don't recognize the photo but it looks like a map of Africa. Instead of seeing that, I saw the Uniroyal Tire (large tire) recently, which doesn't compare to the above photo.

    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!

    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.
