Great car at great price (used)

1992 Saab 900 S 2dr Convertible
This is a really fun car to drive and it has stood the test of time (13 years) in terms of reliability and durability. It certainly has its quirks like the funky key placement (accidental coffee spills can cost you a new ignition switch and starter!) and limited visibility and sometimes annoying mysterious electrical issues. Small stuff for a car this old. It drives better than most cars and with over 130000 miles is still rock solid at freeway speeds. Buy a cheap used one and you'll have loads of fun. treat it well and keep up with the basic maintenance and you'll have a great car. They can be picked up very cheap due to age and Saab's appalling depreciation (I would never buy one new!)
Fun to drive, very good handling, great in bad weather (even in snow) exceptionally quiet and durable top compared to other convertibles (I've never replaced mine and the car has never been garaged) comfortable seats, roomy interior, many standard features.
No cup holders back then? A bit lacking in power (get the turbo if possible). Expensive parts - don't go to the dealership as the web has loads of great resources for this car. Treat the car right and it won't be the Saab Saab story I have heard of but never experienced!
