Top Queer and the 9-3 Convertible

Saab is a gay-friendly company. Apparently. I never knew. I always thought they just treated everyone the same, but apparently they’re gay friendly, whatever that means. Perhaps the dealers have finely tuned gay-dars and offer the incredibly neat and stylishly dressed customers a kiss and a tickle? All you dealers out there please do tell!!

With that out of the way, it’s time to see what Gaywheels (or Top Queer as I nicknamed them last time) think of the 9-3 Convertible.

You guessed it – It’s two willies up!

The intinerary included 2 weeks, 5 states and over 1,600 miles. The car performed flawlessly, rain and shine.

Top Queer did a review of the 9-5 SportCombi recently and the result wasn’t exactly shining. They compared it to a “little black T-shirt” that you just can’t do without, if you’re into that sort of thing. Yeah, it’s as camp as a row of tents, but the point is valid.

So is the point they make with the 9-3 Convertible. It’s great to drive, it scores points in all the right areas and as all of us Saabers know – it’s car you won’t see around every corner.

The engine is smooooooth, loves to rev and has just a small amount of turbo lag. It is so vibration-free and quiet I found myself doing 85 in 4th gear and not knowing it – more than once.

At the end of the alloted time, I was honestly sad to see the car go. This will be on my list of cars that I’ll offer when the inevitable “what should I buy” question comes my way. It is softer and more civilized than it’s german competitors and offers a great gay-friendly alternative to the pervasive BMW 3-series that every third gay man drives.

  1. Of course Saabs are friendly to both teams. All that versatile cargo space sure comes in handy when players on the other team go shopping at Pier 1 or Crate & Barrel …..
