Congratulations Natalie, Having been a 2 Saab family for over 15 years, we just bought our 5th just prior to returning to the states from a posting in Korea. We got a 97 2.5 v6 900SE. I got back to the states 2 months ago and now have 4k miles on it. My other car is a 95 2.5 v6 900SE. Since the 97 didn't come with a manual tranny option, my wife now refers to "my" car as the "old man mobile." I'm sure you'll have the time of your life with it. Having spent a few years in the Monterey area, I'm sure that you'll be taking Highway 1 south to Big Sur one of these days. It's a glorious drive! I'm curious as to why you need a "Swedish" female name for your car. As they say - "Find your own road!"
