Anything to do with Toyota buying a chunk of GM's stock in Fuji? So, the SAABaru is no more ... Ho-hum! Not the best of cross-manufacturer re-badgings I've seen. The big problem being that the "Scooby" is the modern equivalent of the C900, but the SAABaru was not anything like the top-spec/high-power vehicle that the C900 was in it's day. I was a nice enough car, but nothing special for either manufacturer. I hear the next 9-2 will be based on the Vauxhall/Opel Astra. Their turbo convertible is quite a good car. Not a bad move, IMO. Vauxhall/Opel have come a long way since the "bad old days". Not a real "SAAB", but heck, what is nowadays. 'Contemporise .... Maaaannnn!' :) I see SAAB/GM are interested in re-releasing the Sonett, based on the Vauxhall VX220! Schwing! I'd like one of those. Staunch competition to the VW re-release of the Scirocco :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
