Can’t remember what I searched for, or even what I was looking for now, but I entered one of those rabbit warren moments and ended up discovering a great article over on mumsnet.com, the topic – women and their cars.
Not sure how many women ever look at this blog, but for the most part, comments, cars and communications generally come from the men, which is a shame, women love their cars too. My wife is a great example, she loves her Saab 9-3 SportCombi, so much so, she makes me swear that I’ll drive it nicely when I borrow it, she may not take photos or write about it, but she loves it all the same.
Anyway, back to the article, the subject was, “What cars have you had/driven and which was the best/worst?”. Plenty of marque variety, but some wonderful comments about their Saabs :
My first car was a very grown up Saab 900XS. Lovely, it was like driving a sofa!
I was the fondest of the Saab with its ski flap.
Saab 95 – very nice car
Saab 9-3 convertible with body kit and Honda v5 2.5L engine (one off demo)
Most fun to drive – Saab (shit off a shovel)
My favourite was a SAAB 9000 – fast, comfortable, had everything. I miss it still.
And the best one :
Best Car Ever is my Saab Turbo 93 – devastated the day Saab closed. My Dad had a Saab when I was younger and I loved it then so my ambition (car wise ) was to own a Saab. Fine day when I eventually picked my Saab up from the dealer. I intend to keep driving it till it falls apart.
