    It's actually about 1.8 hours away in Connecticut, but it's about halfway between Cambridge and NYC. I only pass by it when I've been driving between the cities, and never when it's open.

    While blasting around the mountains of western MA with LeVeL. As he described it, two very different ways of having a lot of fun on mountain roads.

    Such a sleeper with its winter wheels and snowy camo.

    Incidentally, Dr_Grip, I did check out the Aero Diner and it's quite awesome.

    As you may have gathered from Random Thoughts, I may be back to the US later this year and would love to check it out with you.

    Sweet! If I'm feeling brave I'll take the 96.

    It's in the eastern part of CT, on highway 6 in North Windham.

    Ah, okay. Wasn't the one I was thinking of. I'm originally from between Hartford and New Haven.

    No, this bump isn't because it's being sold like the public's and Hbriz's 900s, though if anyone wants my 96 they can get in touch. I did stop by the location of Cape Cod Saab in Barnstable MA that was once run by Kurt Vonnegut.

    Good work I wonder how many Saabs have been photographed there.

    I'm missing the reference. Is this because of the Mr Kurt Vonnegut connection or the gratuitous 'IT WORKS!' sign to juxtapose the normal operations of the automobile?

    Well, we'll see; I just got news from my mechanic that the clutch is on its way out and the bracket holding the master cylinder is also borked. It'll take four hours of labor to fix that, and that's even before the clutch labor. I'm definitely fixing this and keeping the 9000, but the 96 is starting to look more and more expendable.

    To paraphrase somebody whose name I've forgotten, this Saab feels like a big car until a real big car shows up.

    That's a beautiful building, where is it? I'll probably be back in MA late December/early January.

    It's the Aero Diner in Windham, CT. We should take a road trip there when you're back; either that, or some other old-school diner closer to home.
