If you confused another brand for a Saab with a rear > engine, I'm going to suggest a Skoda 105/120/130 (badged as Estelle in > the UK) looks quite similar in shape to a 99 Saloon. well the size is similar, but more volvo 300 saloon than anything, too square.. A 99 has a few more nice curves on it, especially with that semi sweeping fastback look, concave rear window, clamshell bonnet, curved windscreen. Actually one car that is often mistaken for a 70's saab of some sort, is the VW type 4..maybe this is what brian remembers... http://www.hallvw.clara.net/type4.htm
