My Mum bought her first SAAB in 1983, a 5 door 900 GL. I've always liked them. She had 3 or 4 of them until we finally convinced her a Benz was a better choice. Every one of them blew a head gasket at some point, they never overheated or misbehave but one day at a service or oil check the tell tales would be there.
The pick of the bunch was a 1991 3 door 900 EMS 16V. That car handled so so well.
Office furniture - a mobile meeting room for clients. It's under the deductible threshold.
The Ford V4 is most unlikely to blow head gaskets.

Brian
