CPU-thats whats wrong with it now. WHy its so cheep.
I will tell him.
My first car was our '87 red Saab convertible with turbos:D Even though it was 20 years old, I absolutely loved loved loved that car, and still sorely miss it. My sister and I would fight over who got to drive it, and I distinctly remember if the weather was above, like 50 degrees in March the top went down and the seat heater on lol :lol: Or cruisin on the hot summer nights, in fall, but not winter- that toy got stored for the NH winters...
The car did have it's downsides, ie, the gas gage didn't work, so you had to watch the mileage for every trip, the roof though once automatic, was broken so when it rained it was see how fast you could stand in the back seat and pull the roof up, it didn't like to start if it had been sitting awhile... ok so it actually had a lot of problems, but I loved it anyways :love-struck:
I had an MGB convertible that I loved, and it went through many New England summers and winters. My vote is to have it checked thoroughly for mechanical issues, (my sister loved her Saab) and go for it.
Someone in my family has had a Saab for as long as I can remember--I can think of 7 off the top of my head. Three early-mid '80s hatchbacks, one '96 convertible, one '99 wagon, and two '03 sedans. There might be more. I personally would only ever have one as a fun car and wouldn't touch any GM Saab with a 10-foot pole. The '80s Swedish-made ones were/are (one is still going strong with about 400,000 miles on it) pretty solid. The later models are constantly breaking down, and dear god the convertible was especially awful. I was surprised my sister bought her '03 Saab after the ridiculousness that was the '96 convertible.
I agree with staying away from plastic windows, they don't wear well.
I highly recommend the MR2 Spyder, unless your DH is really tall, in which case he may not be that comfortable!
