SAAB 90 - The Other 99
  99 . 900 Classic  

Most of what is on this page comes from The SAAB 90 Site, the work of Tony Lloyd across the pond. Since the 90 was never imported into the US, I've never seen one. As Tony says: "If you've heard of the 90, the chances are it's from one place. The 90 achieved notoriety by being covered by the same Haynes manual as the popular 99 and 900 models. (Parents to the freakish love child 90)." A great quote, eh? So, what does the "freakish love child" look like?
