1970 Saab 99 Review
My 1970 Saab — It's definitely not a performance car, but it is a solid car from the period with a great safety record. This is a fun car, with respectable gas mileage and maintenance and unique styling. The exterior is a love/hate relationship with most people, but the interior is just what would be expected from the period. I am currently working on restoring it right now. Just love these SAABs!
Pros: Small, light, fun!
Cons: Rough runner at the moment...
