I am here to correct you! Saab made other models besides the turbo in the '70s and '80s. There was the S and the 8 valve base model. I got an 8 valve base model with manual windows, cloth seats, manual transmission, two door hatchback - no radio, no turbo, no ABS, no airbags, no cup holders, no sunroof, no fog lights, no SPG package, no floor mats, no power mirrors, no power antennae, no headlight wipers, no metallic paint, no leather seating surfaces and no alarm. GPS, Onstar and remote entry were not available back then. Yes -Saab did make entry level cars! pablo wrote: > "Four Weis" <mweinopsamcom> wrote in message > news:3DDC3DEA.7FDD3999nopsamcom... > > ....
