I bought my 85 Saab 900 (new) while in Germany and since 1987 it has been driven through Canadian winters. Yes, it's starting to rust, but that can be repaired. I have been lucky in that over the last 14 years the only major/unexpected repairs were a new rad, new water pump, an oil pressure sender unit and CV joints (or something like that). You might want to check on access to a good Saab mechanic (and parts). Other than that, go for it.
