If your car is a 9-5 Aero Wagon with a manual transmission... you can will it to me. I'll take great care of it! (I'd also be happy with that Laser Red Viggen... if you're looking for someone to take good care of it.)
While I do enjoy driving my Saab (Actually, I've loved all 6 that I've owned and all +/-13 that I've driven in my family), I'm not sure that what happens to them after I die has crossed my mind. When that time draws nearer (I'm 41), I'd see if there was a younger Saab enthusiast in my family and give him/her the car.
Honestly, even if there was a neighbor kid who just loved the thing, Maybe I'd give it to them.
I suspect that this conversation would only be worth having if the Saab in question was particularly rare, cool, or collectible. (How many red 5-door Viggen were ever made... that's gotta be one of the lower production number specs for the Viggen, right?)
Maybe when I'm 95 and I give up driving whatever manual, internal combustion-engined car I have stored away in a garage corner, the museums will want it! Charitable donation!
Cheers, and still looking for that 5-speed 9-5 Aero Wagon,
