Grunff, I'm glad you think that's an interesting idea. It would actually be possibl= e ironically since Saab's factory in Trollh=E4tten is currently running at = half the capacity. So they should use the other 50% for the C900, C9000 and= NG900 by bringing them back as commemorative / vintage editions which of c= ourse use today's technology, so everything would be virtually upgraded (no= t falling back to shotty replacements found here in there in contemporary m= odels). You know they had the Viggen, but they could always bring in models such as= the following "Gripen" "Draken" "Tunnan" "Lansen" "Safir" Also keep in mind Talladega was had in 1986 with the C9000 and 1996 with th= e NG900, so why can't Saab run the 9-3 SS in 2006 down at Talladega interna= tional speedway?

If Saab kept C900 or NG900s for = that matter, or both of them and kept upgrading them then adding the 9-3SS = to the fleet, everyone would be happy. > > It would be nice to see a 2005 C900, 2005 NG900 along with the 9-3SS an= d 9-3 SportCombi.
