Good luck with your new aero combi, very > nice one. What are you, nuts? I see rusted-out 9k's all the time! Really badly rusted out 9K's. The CS-body cars tend to be in good shape, sometimes a little corrosion around the rear wheelwells etc, but the flat-nose 86-90 ish cars, wow. C900's I have also seen many rusty. Saabs do tend to look good for a long time, and are relatively good on rust. But damn how I hate that lower control arm rust issue on the C900.
