Finally, someone who like the NG900. I agree that they are good cars, but not great. My opinion, if you buy new you are paying too much - if you must have a NG900, buy previously owned. Watch out for the 1996(?) 900 manual transmission, for some reason Saab used a clutch cable after using a hydraulic for decades. They went back to a hydraulic clutch the next year. Personally I prefer the Classic 900. I am on only my second Classic since 1985. The first one had to go after 16 years because of rust from too much fun in the road salt, snow and ice. The Classic is great in the snow, being perfectly predictable and controllable. As for the original question: the Classic was made thru 1993. Find your mother a newer Classic 900 and take the old one off her hands :-) 'nuther Bob wrote: > On Sat, 15 Mar 2003 20:33:25 GMT, "NHdude" <nhdude001nopsamo.com> > wrote: > > >>I too am not a big fan of the "new shape" 900 or 93.
