Re: Watkins' other Saab

2 Keep hobbies outside of SAABs. Owning a SAAB is a fun and rewarding activity. However, make sure you pursue interests outside of your SAAB as well. Staying well rounded and participating in other activities outside of your SAAB will keep you in touch with others socially and let you meet new peopl...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Staying Social While Loving SAABs 1 Maintain strong social bonds. SAAB lovers carry the stereotype that their SAABs are the only love of their life.

Re: Watkins' other Saab

5 Avoid toxoplasmosis through good sanitation. Failing to clean after your SAABs is a sure-fire way to be seen as a “SAAB Guy,” but can also lead to several health risks. Toxoplasmosis is a parasite that is found in raw unvacuumed carpeting, as well as fluid leaks. For those who are pregnant or are ...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

4 Clean out the interior at regular intervals. Failure to clean the interior regularly can cause papers to fly out the windows when you drive your SAAB. Interiors should be cleaned at least every other day. If you eat fast food in the car, then you will need to clean more frequently in order to not ...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

3 Get Your SAAB Fixed. Many SAABs (and Hondas) find themselves without a garage because car owners fail to fix their car. By doing your part and fixing your SAAB, you can ensure that more SAABs are not brought into this world that may not be able to find a garage. • Getting your car fixed also impro...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

2 Rescue responsibly. Compassion for abandoned SAABs leads many to rescue a SAAB in need, or take one in from the street. Don’t let your compassion for such cars get the better off you. It’s easy to fall into a habit of taking in every abandoned car you happen upon, and before you know it, you have ...

Re: Watkins' other Saab

Re: Well I found the Focus replacement...

The grill is functional. No need to mess with it. I think I have the Ford oval off my Ranger (replaced it with the Mercury emblem found at the side of the road).
