1974 Saab 99 LE

The 1974 Saab 99 LE that we found in Kentucky is affectonately known as Garfield, after the cartoon cat. The name stuck because of the color, the black stripe down one side (which will be replicated on the other) and the fact that it was originally owned by Jim Davis, the creator of the Garfield comic strip.
