I bought a new car over the weekend, fun stuff! Its a Saab 9-2X Aero Edition. I didnt get rid of my old car, because I will be depending on that ride for when i go on those type of urban expeditons where you say a lil' prayer and hope your car is still there when you get back, hahaha. It's kinda a big jump for me, because not only did I ever imagine driving a car with a manual transmission, but also a car that is red. I guess even I can suprise myself :)

Nice, Archie!

I drive a 1999 saab convertible. I love the car. You got the nice wheels with it...good going! The turbos on Saabs really kick nicely

If you're ever looking for a good place to get it maintained other than the dealer, I found that "Saab Tech" place over near the carwash on Clybourn and Southport to be pretty good.

Have fun!

I thought you were going to buy a Volvo!!!
You should have bought it before we left. I haven't tried a Saab yet. As per our conversation, you made the right decision on buying a manual transmission.
Drive carefully.

Hot damn, Archie! This is the kind of red Toyota should have for the Prius (which I just got recently), not that salsa red that looks like dried blood. Sweet car. And gets 40 mpg in the city, right? ;-)
