In article <QxWTg.18401$E02.7289nospamb.telia.net>, someguynospamwhere.se says... Funny thing about that - When I was driving my 1990 900 CAB, and I saw the "New Version" 900's nd 9000's, I said to the dealer, "Next time will be my first non-Saab automobile". I felt they had gone too far in seeking the general public, and were alienating their mainstream support. But with time, those 900's and 9000's, along with the first generation 9,3 and 9,5's (that looked just like them) became more acceptable, and in they end they seem almost as "pure Saab" as the older ones, even if we know that underneath things were changing (and in fact, I am now driving one of them). From the 2003 and onward, we know they are just Opel Vectras with Saab logos, and the latest 9,7's or whatever are direct mid-market Japan imports... I have no doubt that GM has done what was needed to keep the Saab logo from disappearing altogether, but it is not surprising hat most "traditional" Saab enthusiasts will be hard pressed to find any reason to buy another.
