    That green Saab has a 1985 or later hood (bonnet) but a 1981 grill. I used to have a 1982 Saab 900. There was no emblem. The emblem on the hood began with the 1985 model year. I think the 1982-1983 grill was the best. That had 3 diagonal slates on the right and left sides. This was reduced to one on each side in 1984. The 3 diagonal slate design was used for the horn buttons, which were long diagonal buttons with ridges made to sort of resemble 3 slates.

    Saab 900 stars in an award winning Japanese film

    The Japanese film, Drive My Car, has won 3 awards at the Cannes Film Festival in 2021, including one for best screenplay.

    Wikipedia has a copyright-free review but the photo is not copyright-free. See the photo here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drive_My_Car_(film) It's a red 1987 Saab 900 turbo 3 door that is LHD, not the usual RHD for Japanese cars.

    To help follow it, the 4 main characters are the director, director's chauffeur who is a young woman, the actor, and the Saab. I've added bold, italics and underscore to make it easier to follow.

    Actor and theater director Yūsuke Kafuku is married to Oto, a screenwriter. Oto conceives her stories during sex and narrates them to Yūsuke. After watching her husband in a performance of Waiting for Godot, Oto introduces Yūsuke to her frequent collaborator, the young actor Kōji Takatsuki. When Yūsuke returns home early one day, he finds his wife having sex with a young man, presumably Takatsuki. He leaves silently without being noticed and does not bring it up with her. One day, as Yūsuke is leaving for work, Oto tells him she wants to talk to him later that evening. Yūsuke returns home late to find Oto dead from a brain hemorrhage. After her funeral, Yūsuke has a breakdown during a performance of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and is unable to continue the show.

    Two years later, Yūsuke accepts a residency in Hiroshima, where he will direct a multilingual adaptation of Uncle Vanya. Yūsuke casts Kōji, whose career has recently been hurt by improper conduct, as Uncle Vanya despite his young age and concerns for his erratic behavior. The theater company requires that Yūsuke not drive but be chauffeured in his own car, a red 1987 Saab 900 Turbo. He objects at first, but relents after the reserved young female chauffeur, Misaki Watari, reveals herself to be a skilled driver.

    One night, Yūsuke meets with Kōji at a bar, where Kōji admits to loving Oto but claims it was an unrequited love. During their drives, Yūsuke and Misaki begin to bond as Yūsuke tells her about Oto and the loss of their daughter, who would have been Misaki's age. Misaki tells him about her abusive mother who died in a mudslide five years earlier that crushed the family's house, during which she sustained an injury that left a prominent scar on her left cheek.

    After another outing at a bar, Yūsuke criticizes Kōji's lack of self control. As they're leaving, Kōji slips away briefly to follow a man who had been taking photos of him without permission. During their drive home, Yūsuke reveals to Kōji that he knew of his wife's affairs but kept quiet for fear of losing her. Kōji shares one of Oto's stories that Yūsuke had never heard in its entirety. Some days later, the police arrive at a rehearsal and arrest Kōji because the photographer he fought with has now died from the injuries he sustained in their fight. The directors of the residency offer Yūsuke a choice: either step into the role of Vanya or cancel the play altogether.

    Yūsuke asks Misaki to take him to her childhood home in Hokkaido. During their car trip, Misaki reveals that she could have saved her mother in the mudslide, but chose not to. Yūsuke reveals that he might have saved his wife had he come home to face the discussion she wanted to have. They arrive at the remains of Misaki's childhood home and share a tender moment. They comfort each other and then return to Hiroshima, where Yūsuke assumes the role of Vanya and gives an impassioned performance before a live audience which includes Misaki.

    In the present day, Misaki finishes shopping for groceries in Korea and gets into the red Saab, where a dog waits for her in the back seat. She takes off her mask, revealing that her scar is now barely visible, and drives away.

    I saw an ad for a 2002 Volkswagen Passat with 104,000 miles for $1,500. It seems that the car needs a radiator which cannot be found. The car has a weird W8 engine. So Saab owners have it good in comparison!

    I wonder if the headlights are also hard to find as they are not like the commonly found headlights on a Passat.
