You are a - serious - SAAB owner.. :) .. SAABS are exactly the sort of thing that can bring down an mid-point marriage.. They, given some of their proclivities, throw into high and bold relief certain assumptions about one another and any underlying stresses that may be eroding an otherwise amiable relationship between a man and woman .. As I have pointed out in another missive regarding the greater used SAAB/happy dad relationship - it takes a whole team of committed individuals to pull it off successfully and - thusly - I always advise younger men with an interest in a SAAB to try to acquire it - before - sparking around their county.. It lets the other party know where you stand on the SAAB question upfront and thusly - they can decline the offer of a ride and a soda and maybe a wedding ring one day - before - anyone's feelings get hurt.. I never advise bringing a SAAB into a standing relationship where one party or the other do not fully agree that the adoption should take place and that they will be much happier working on it and living with it together for the reasons stated above - although I understand there is always a very interesting and rather expensive meeting with the adjudicator eventual about the true value of a used SAAB when someone goes ahead away.. We had a bad 900 once that not only sucked what little money we had set aside but was then thrown up in each others faces for the next two car buys... Depending on who and when - the comments were interchangeable between both my wife and I.. "You're still an idiot - has the wine finally melted your brain so you don't remember Basil the Blue 900?" vs "Come on - give me a break and stop calling me an idiot for *** sakes - this one is way different - newer - and they are not all bad in the first place - Basil was just a lemon".. It took three cars and two kids before I could bundle my backside back in that heated Swedish Seat nirvana again - which if I may say - would have been cold comfort in trade for a good wife despite all its many and subtle charms.. -- J Dexter - webmaster - http://www.dexterdyne.org/ all tunes - no cookies no subscription no weather no ads no news no phone in - RealAudio 8+ Required - all the Time Radio Free Dexterdyne Top Tune o'be-do-da-day Sinatra Martin Davis - Ain't That A Kick in the Head http://www.dexterdyne.org/888/036.RAM
