With one daughter permanently moved to New Zealand and another one (who doesn't live here, but comes home for car repair) about to move to a newer car, I'm on the verge of thinning the herd from four Saabs to two. That will likely move out the two 9-3 SEs, a '99 and a '00. But if the problem spots on my 9K can't be easily resolved, that may go, and I'll keep a 9-3.
It is strange, after 35 years of mostly Saabs in the yard, but time moves on. Various locals refer to me as the "Saab guy," and there will still be a couple Saabs here for a while, but it is weird to think about not having 4 of the things to think about and tinker with.
This is a month or so away, although the '00 will go within a couple weeks. I'll probably have some parts to sell and will put them in the classifieds once I get stuff sorted. The average mileage of the herd is something like 215K. These are, and have been, such great cars.
But with a couple left I'll still be on TSN, which makes owning these beasts so much easier.
