Default Man I miss my Hannah (and you guys!)!!!

Hey guys remember me?
88 900T
broken dizzy
blown rad hoses
custom-made copper exhaust gaskets (oh yeah!)
broken a-arm after backing down drive way
MELTED WIRING after installing keyless entry (DON'T do this, trust me!)

Man I miss having a saab, and thinking i might go back!

The crap-prelude i bought after hannah died apparently has a (very) loose piston pin and a new (used/rebuilt) engine is cheaper than repair... AT ONLY 120,000 MILES!!!! is that just absurd?!?!

I'm looking for a turbo 900, preferably a newer model, like a 92 or 93, but not a convertible (remember, its a heavy car [all cars are heavy!], and when heavy convertibles flip...).

Compared to my old '88, how different are the newer (of the old gen) 900's (other than having less miles!)? I'd probably want an auto (i know, its girlish) but def. turbo!

didn't the breaks get another upgrade?
was there a turbo upgrade? mine was one of the first water-cooled.
did those dog-gawn electric belts ever get regular belts? (state side, anyway)?

Not much improvement from '88 on -- only useless crap like ABS and an airbag!
