You could turn this into a Poll... how many miles/kilometres on your Saab?

0 - 50,000
50,000 - 100,000
100,000 - 150,000
150,000 - 200,000
etc etc.

May need to adjust the values depending on how optimistic you are about the longevity of old Saabs.

This may help if you want to make the Kilometer to Miles conversion, or any other conversion for that matter.

My T16 has 130,000 miles, and the 8v has something over 180,000 miles (frozen odometer so true mileage is a mystery).

The big question that we would have state side is. Do all Saabs odomiters read as miles or not? If not than the ones that don't should convert to miles for the poll. Am I over thinking this? I just want it to be fair about it.
