It’s always good to see someone get a car they’ve dreamed of getting. It’s a great feeling. I managed to do it myself around 18 months ago and HAL_9000 managed to go one better just recently.
As a young fella, Hal_9000 dreamed of getting a 9000CS and it took him 15 years to do so. It only took another 12 months or so for that dream to be ruined by a light truck that crashed into it and wrote it off.
A replacement arrived just a few weeks ago:
It is a stock UK spec (albeit with US indicators) 1996 model Saab 9000 CS Aero which I have owned for a few weeks now. The ability to complete overtaking manoeuvres is devastating and the Aero seats are a revelation!
A very nice replacement indeed!
Congratulations on the replacement, just stay away from those trucks, OK?
