    Saab 900 turbo

    I used to have one, back in the days and I would say it was one of the best cars I have ever had.
    It held the road really well, the turbo was turned up in some way and it really flew, used to love spinning it up off roundabouts and filling the inside with smoke.
    The Carlsons where the bees knees.
    Oh and it had a lovely whistle under boost.

    I would have to vote for classic. Don't see many about at all these days and the styling was always a bit Marmite. Went well though and could be made to go VERY well

    I used to have one of these too and loved it. It wasn't the best looking car, but it was quick and handled pretty well. It was tweaked with a bit before I bought it, which may have helped. Either way, I had fun driving it.

    I only sold it because I was made an offer that I couldn't refuse.

    Never a real fan of Saabs. An automotive cliché for the term "torque steer".

    Went for classic. Ive grown up with saabs as my father has had them for years... Moved away to bmw, lexus, V8 grand cherake thing, but has recently gone back to them. Dash hasnt changed much over the years, but like the sleek lines nowadays..
    Audi A3 sline sportback 170 in silver. Bose symphony II sound system, tracker, auto light/wiper function, polished roof rails and ofcourse not forgetting the armrest.
