I love this blue convertible.

This red one is an SPG. I got to drive it and can't really understand why all the reviewers call Saab's 5-speed "agricultural". The clutch was heavy but easy to modulate. Shifting was reasonably precise and easy to move through the gates. I see no reason not to convert to 5-speed when my auto dies. It was also clear after driving his car that I needed my turbo calibrated and my ABS pump replaced (the part arrived today).

My mechanic has a set of these wheels for sale. Worth considering.

To my surprise, none of them are professors. One works for a chemical company. The other works for a mission.

We ended up pulling over. His turbo air duct came loose. Just had to tighten a clamp when we got to his place.

Went over to his place and checked out his collection of six Saab 900s. Some were parts cars, most were being driven by his family. Even the parts cars were running. Spent a few hours there enjoying some stories about how he bought each one and checked out his growing collection of parts and pieces.

So, that was my very enjoyable afternoon.

I ate a grilled chicken club with a side of macaroni and cheese.

There are problems with this thread.

It had to happen, but I am amazed that the transformation took place so fast. The troll of Trollhaten has struck again and turned Jesda into a "frog troll," the first step into becoming a full fledged "Under The Bridge" Nordic troll. I knew it would come to this, the Abba tapes were the give away! Well, maybe if he stops swilling the aquavit there is hope for him yet! Look for the final signs of complete trolldom; Bergenstocks and National Healthcare bumper stickers .... oh, Jesda say it isn't true! Jesda, whatever you think now , you are not going to like LUTEFISK!

Cadillacs are terrible cars. Never owned one and never will!

It's too late, the transformation is complete! The troll, formerly known as Jesda, is now a certified Bergenstock wearing, Abba playing, Lutefisk loving, Socialist "Under the Bridge" Rollhaten Troll. The Jesda is dead, Long Live the Jesda!!

This red one is an STS I got to drive it and can't really understand why all the reviewers call cadillacs F55 ride control were terrible. The seats was heavy but easy to modulate. Shifting was reasonably precise and easy to move through the gates. I see no reason to sell my caddy for a SAAB when it dies. It was also clear after driving his car that I needed my transducer homogilaic balancer calibrated and my ABS pump replaced (the part arrived today).

If we can tolerate — hell even embrace — a couple of Krautwagen drivers, we can live with a Swedish meatball. Besides, you're going to need the Seville for all the times Ducky decides to take a poop.
