I had an '82 900 Turbo back in the early '90's. I am a mechanical engineer and proficient auto mechanic and restorer, so I did all the work on it myself.
The Saab was interesting to work on, and at its age it needed a lot of attention. It was my daily driver car. It needed frequent repairs and I was doing some mild modifications and restorations as well, as sort of a project. The Saab dealership was just a mile from my w*rk location, and all the parts guys knew me by name. One time they gave me a free Saab cap and calendar. Things were getting a little out of hand at that point.
I had been more of a truck, Mercedes, and military vehicle restorer up to that point, and the 900 Turbo was thrilling to drive in comparison. Spooling up the Turbo yielded a blast of acceleration, and the thing was maneuverable as heck.
It all came to an end one day when I tried to drive it under the side of a city bus. I was not looking where I was going, or going where I was looking, if you get the drift. I am living testimony to the crashworthiness of Swedish cars. That was the end of my using hobby cars as daily drivers. In a moment, a lot of time and an impeccably running car was wasted. Since then I just drive newish, boring Toyotas daily and do my project driving on weekends.
