My personal choice and current issue too. SAAB always seems to look better in black tie. However, when the moon is full and the jar is empty, I have always though that it would be a total hoot to actually chrome a SAAB 900 and mirror the windows to match. Then - recess the grill completely flat with retractable lights like an old Charger. But then, there just doesn't seem any way to chrome the roof, pillars and rear quarters to match. They claim that some of the new paints are *pretty close* - but not really the full monty from what I've seen. That said - an all mirror C900T blowing by you on the highway at night would really be a show stopper given the shape and stance. I wonder how they pull it off on passenger airliners? Is that actually polished aluminium skin and if so, how to they keep it so clean? -- Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Mr Ray Charles - Mess Around http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/182.RAM all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in no sign up required - all the Time
