It’s 900 pickup day!
And it’s off to a bad start, with Swade-induced delays. All a bit too embarassing to talk about really, but lets just say that I’ve now got plenty of time here at the airport to have a shave, write this post, etc etc. I’m quite sure Richo will tell you all about it in comments. I’m too embrassed to write about it.
This is the first time I’ve checked the site since putting up last night’s posts, most particularly the one for the number plate competition.
I did have one in mind before posting it, and yes, it has been thought of by someone and entered, but there’s so many good ones on there it’s actually made the job a little more difficult than I thought. Some excellent creativity been exhibited and definitely some combinations I hadn’t given any thought to whatsoever.
Gotta run, as I only have 30 minutes of web time and maybe there’s some actual news out there somewhere….
OK, there’s not so much news out there from my quick scan.
There IS a good review of the 9-3 SportCombi, however. My favourite new Saab. Here’s a sample.
In just about every respect, the SportCombi is still very much a Saab. It has the ignition key on the floor, those excellent aircraft-style flow-through heat/air-conditioning vents, topnotch instrumentation, and arguably the most comfortable front bucket seats in the industry. Although they weren’t the best-built cars on the road, the non–GM models were always entertaining to drive and that hasn’t changed. I looked forward to sliding behind the wheel of this car every chance I got, and were I in the market for a station wagon, it would be on my shortlist just for its comfort factor.
