The car I've just bought, a Saab 9-5. It is just over 10 years old. It is an old design though and I don't like pistonheads. It is a bit shite and I've not seen many on the road. Does it count? PS. I'm not asking junkman because I know his answer as it was built after 1986.

I seem to be changing cars every 9 months at the moment so about August time. I need to spend a large amount of money on it first.

I know. I'm under the mistaken apprehension that if I spend a grand it will be more reliable. I know, deluded.

I wasn’t suggesting that new cars need to go on pistonheads, just that pistonheads is ‘the section that shouldn’t be named’ :-)

The thing that turned me off retro rides was the almost permanent identity crisis over ‘what was retro’ - drove me fucking mad

Fortunately just about any old crap can be autoshite if there are enough (ie 1) other people who have a soft spot for/always liked/has a hankering for whatever it is that you’ve bought

Funnily enough I'm deliberating over a cheap, (possibly not) fucked 9-3 dizzla (2003) which hopefully* just needs an EGR clean up. But then part of me is thinking 'too modern'.

 

So I'm back to looking at 1990s shit heaps where there are less than 25 models on the road.

 

If the Saab is still available in the morning I may change my mind again


My shite CV 1986-date

 

1986-1988 1969 VW Beetle 1300 (two years)

1988-1990 1977 Morris Marina 1.3 Super (two years)

approx 1998 1983 Skoda Estelle 120L (a month)

approx 1998 year unknown marque forgotten Metro engine size, who cares (a month)

approx 1998 1998 brand new Vauxhall Corsa hire car (failed to start one morning, AA called) (a week)

1999 year unknown Vauxhall Cavalier 1.6 (Dad knockoff, fucked it within a week)

1999-2016 semi-retired from driving due to previous choice of shite cars

2017 2004 Rover Streetwise S 1.4 84ps

I should be ok then. Recent Saab's seem to be pretty undesirable based on how much they cost and how difficult they are to move on.
