You won't be able to sell anyone on the power of a Saab, unless it is a turbo. Where the Classic Saab are great is how they handle, especially on wet and snowy roads. A real selling point will to agree to help pay for a major stereo upgrade - if he takes the Saab. If he does not want it at all let me know - I will take it! I proved my Saab can stop faster than a Ford pickup when I came to a stop sign, and believe it or not, I actually stopped. The pickup hit the back of my 900 and only scratched the trunk. Later, a Mazada 626 was driving at night without any lights on, since I forgot to turn on my radar or wear my night vision goggles, I pulled out, resulting in an accident. I needed only a new bumper - the body of the Mazada was twisted to the point where all the windows broke and the seats broke off the mounts. That is why I still drive a Classic Saab today!
