I have a 9-5 Aero in cosmic blue which i love but can be expensive. My fourth Saab after my Dad passed on the bug. Went to Swedish Day in May which was great......enough saab's to make you dribble.

Most were of the 9000 (Aero, Anniversary, regular CSE) and 900 (3/5/4 door and convertible) model, but there also was one 9-5:

I had a 900 Turbo 16v, it has been 'tweaked' by Abbot Racing and it was a beast :twisted:

My mum had an early 900, based on the Triumph Dolomite?

Triumph supplied the engines for the earliest 99's. Later 99's got an engine that was derived from the Triumph engine and that was built in house with Saab.
