Eeyore (rabbitsfriendsandrelationsnospamail.com) gurgled happily, sounding much like they were saying : >> >> >> I don't know why you claim this to be the case. >> >> > Because it's a fact ? >> >> What were the sales numbers, broken down by body and year? >> > I don't know where one would get those. >> Ah, so it isn't a _fact_, it's a supposition.

Not a fact. >> Shame we're a minimum of a decade down the line from the 9k's demise, >> beyond the average life expectancy of an average new car, and >> therefore the survival rates have little to do with original new >> sales. > You seriously think a 9000 is 'worn out' after 10 years ? Many will be, yes. Worn out, bent, discarded as beyond economically viable repair. The usual things which kill older cars. Except some people decide to repair/maintain on other reasons than sheer economic viability - often an inability to identify a suitable replacement - in this case, a big exec-class hatch. After all, nobody makes 'em any more, because they didn't sell well when they did make 'em. Ergo, hatches may well survive better than saloons. But since you didn't quite understand that the first couple of times I explained it to you, you probably won't now, either. > I'm beginning to really wonder why you even post here. Because I want to. Why wouldn't I...? Oh, wait, you're suggesting I'm a troll? <looks at window at c900> Nah, but that might be - it's from the right part of the world. >> > CDs are a real rarity.

Go on, take a guess... Even you've got a fighting chance of getting it right in the allowed number of goes. > How many CDs are here ? > http://saab9000.com/gallery/index.php Lovely, an' all. Irrelevant, but lovely. I wonder what proportion of surviving c900s are turbos and/or convertibles? Do you think that's the same proportion as were originally sold new? Tell you what, you come up with the sales figures to disprove that theory.
