What makes a real Saab a real Saab? Why is a current Saab a lesser Saab than a 1980 Saab? Drive any modern <insert brand> and it's very different from something in the 1970s. Modern stuff with a Saab badge is a modern interpretation of what you may consider to be a proper Saab. -- The DervMan www.dervman.com
