  2. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

    Can't believe my eyes. Read TGmag Sep2002 on the way to work today. Two page review of the Saab 9-3 by everyone's favourite northern irish motoring journo, Deidre Barlow, who actaully seems to like the 9-3 Sports Saloon! In the photo he even manages to get the fwd car stepping out at the back...
