Being cheap and unpopular is what makes a Skoda what it is. You can tune it, mess with break it, and fix it again, sometimes even for nothing. And if you can't fix it, you can find another, again sometimes for nothing. And now with the Saab, well it is classier than any Skoda except the latest VW badged ones, but I would feel a bit guilty about owning one of those, after loving the old ones. And now I have a modicum of luxury, for banger prices, and a little fix up money. -- Carl Robson (The poster formerly known as Skodapilot) http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
