    Since I was in Boston studying music Saabs meant so much to me I bought a used 1976 99 gl. In 1985 I started the new car dream. I bought a 1985 base 900. I traded for a 1987 900 Turbo. I bought a 1989 9000 Turbo. I bought a used monte carlo yellow convert- ible. I loved the 1993 9000 Aero I got next. In 1995 I bought a 1995 900 Se convertible. I had a 1999 95 followed about a year later for a 1999 95 wagon. I leased my first Saab in 2001 for a Vig- gen. I leased a 2004 95 aero followed by my last 93 combi.
    Towards the end I’ve leased two Scion xb’s and I loved the
    difference these little boxes were to my auto needs. I always loved the potent Saab Turbo four cylinder engine and the hatch- back. Since 1985 I loved Saabs and lived Saabs. The economy and the idea of getting the best value out of a vehicle has now changed for me.
    I now drive a Toyota Prius which has the hatchback that Saab started and left. Running premium has left me disappointed as well since five years ago the 95 could run fine on regular.
