The mention of trunk size and how far the seats go back in an article about a car like this just makes me groan. But for most people, that's what a car is all about, which is why so many people drive big, heavy vehicles that move ponderously down the road.

If you've never experienced a car like the Saab Sonett, I can understand your confusion. You may wonder why someone would pay so much for such a small car, with so little trunk space, and no back seats. When I was a kid, people drove those great big "living rooms on wheels" that wallowed around the streets of America in the 1960s and 70s. Nowadays it's SUVs, and I feel sorry for people who will never know the true joy of driving.

Saab Sonett interior

To drive a Saab Sonett, it is best to be 5' 10" with a 32-inch inseam. I am lucky - this car fit me like a glove. This is one of the last pictures I took of it before I sold it in 1986.
