My Favorite Car: 2008 Saab 9-3 convertible, Michael Hoylman, 61, St. Petersburg

'08 Saab 9-3 Convertible

Each car I have owned over the years has been my favorite one at the time. My current favorite, and probably favorite of all time, is a 2008 Saab 9-3 Convertible that I bought used right before Saab went bankrupt. I think it is one of the best looking cars I have ever owned and is very fun to drive with a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that not only is powerful but gets great gas mileage. Too bad General Motors never could figure out how to market it. Those are my nieces, Brittany and Lindsiann, in the photo with me.
