There are still several Saabs in my town, but I have one of about 4 or 5 9Ks. I think I'm the only person with more than 2. There are some 9-3 SS and 9-5s (including my wife's). A handful of OG 9-3s (one is mine). There are a few summer-only C900 Verts and OG 9-3 'verts. My indy has customers who come from 60 miles away.
The daughter who bought the Honda lived for 3 years in West Dover VT (base of Mt. Snow ski area) and there were maybe 4 Saabs in town. On our 725 mile run to the house in Nova Scotia we can go the entire distance and not see another Saab, and 250 miles of that is in Maine. We can go a week in Nova Scotia and not see any Saabs. Last trip up I saw 2 in about 8 days. And almost no one near our place there works on them.
Glad I can do my own work and that we have a good indy, and he now works on all makes and models.
