Saab 99 Gl 5 Speed 1984 — Poor acceleration with the boring single carb 100hp H-engine but good mpg under most conditions. Nice but weak 5sp gearbox. Spent very little on repairs until sold after 275 000 km, only needed to repair damages caused by the SAAB-servicemen themselves. Yes, these cars were different from other cars, even for the SAABoholics. Durable and comfortable GL interior but very little luxury. One of the last built, extremely reliable, will start under any condition. For highway use only. Ugliest in your state.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Cheap, probably free. Nice handling on icy roads.

Cons: Looks, Performance, Looks once again.

Legendary Police-saab Early 80's — This model was very common in police when I was a little kid. Almost everyone remembers this as "Police-Saab". These last model year 99's were all with 2 litre H-engine with single carburator. I updated this model with nice US Turbo wheels.

Pros: Very warm and safe car in winter driving.

Cons: If you compare this to common cars from 90's, you can notice the difference. Also in bad things...
