Although I reckon that a few of the south coast owners club chapter may have been secretly trying to sink that container after I mentioned that I was thinking about a classic 900 as next car (French secret service and greenpeace style). After I mentioned it, I got an anti Saab rant front one of the guys about how his 900 owning neighbour is always going on about reliability, then has trouble winter starting, when neither his Rapid nor 6 Estelles don't ever need any time to warm up, or start up. I explained he probabley has the worst kind of Marque snob, not a real enthusiast owner. Also told him about the Absinthe stories on either Saab Scene or Saabcentral (can't remember which), and the Scrapyard tuning (a second APC from the breakers and a Screw driver (to tinker with and tune), or bigger turbos and a Volvo intercooler from a breakers yard) but I don't think he got it. -- Carl Robson http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
