One of the things I miss most about my old 1985 Saab 900 Aero is the sound. It sounded like a beast.
The car had a 3-inch exhaust system that used to scrape a little on our driveway as I backed in. That was a problem, but there’s no way in the world that I would have changed that exhaust because it provided the ultimate soundtrack.
Fooling around on YouTube earlier today, I came upon a few Saab 900 videos and it occurred to me that there are people out there who are relatively new to Saab, and may not have experienced the aural phenomenon that is the original Saab 900. For mine, it’s about as close to a V8 sound as you can get with just four cylinders (yet another example of Saab’s rightsizing 🙂 ).
Enjoy – and if you feel so inclined, go out and find one to preserve.
The music cuts just in time on this one….
