Re: My wife wants a 96 - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I had a 95 (the wagon) years and years ago. Drove it from New England
to Texas and Chicago and back. Very solid feeling (manual steering) but
buzzy at highway speeds. The 4-on-the-tree I found to be a lot of fun,
you can sort of drive it one-handed. I could drive back from the ice-cream
place at the other end of town with a cone in my left hand steering and
shifting with my right. Probably dumb.
Maintaining one now would be, um, interesting. My feeling is that
if you're really willing to fork out the cash, go and check out one
of the nice ones in the classifieds in person. Might want to spend
some time driving a newer manual transmission car first -- easier on
the car and the new driver.
Wonderful cars though.
