Car Models: Looking to purchase a 96 or 99 turbo as next project
I can’t search for “99” or “96” on the forum because the search engine will only search for strings of four characters and above.

Am I missing something?

Help, please...

Hello, the search box has a minimum length of four characters. This is built in to the forum software and cannot be bypassed.

Quote:
The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: 99 .
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 4 characters and must not contain more than 84 characters excluding wildcards.


You can search for the likes of 900 as a wildcard search - 900* - to meet the four character criteria, but it will return tens of thousands of results.

Thanks Dovie, I’ll try 99** or 96**, and I guess 96V4 will work, but apart from Sonnet or 900i, I can’t think of a SAAB model with four or more characters in its name?

Is there a forum somewhere for older SAABs?

There is our Classic Workshop here that covers the older models.

There is also the Saab V4 forum outwith UK Saabs that many of the owners of older cars frequent.

The forum search is very limited in its ability.
It is more effective to use a Google search, limited to the UK Saabs web-site by including "site:uksaabs.co.uk" as one of the search terms. Assuming, of course, that you have no great objection to using Google and the implications for your privacy.
For example:
