Found this mechanically sound low-mileage southern car at a dealership in DC and snatched it up quickly. Plenty quick stock, but it's quiet and a bit soft, so I'm already planning mods.

I like the keyring. Not a huge fan of Saabs in general, but seems to be a nice example (and lacking color). :p And at least the DaveSaab was a fun drive in a different, slightly wobbly way. :D

Hah, I made that keychain for him. Kept one for myself for the inevitable day when I get a Saab myself...

Just installed my first mod, an open intake. Sounds much better now, but since it's on the passenger's side, it's not as impressive as the 9000. Definitely needs more go to go with the noise; I just need to decide if I want to go all-out with the turbo-back exhaust and stage 3 or just do stage 1 with it as-is.
