Japanese film called Tokyo Gore Police

Terrible film, but I'm a big Asian film fan

The police all drive 900 turbo classic models

Have you seen Infernal Affairs?  There's a Saab 9000 in that, and a brilliant film, too! 8)

Just watched the whole of the "Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" trilogy....unsurprisingly, more Saabs than you can shake a handful of birch-twigs at.

Where, when, how  :o

Just reading the trilogy in paperback. Superb, but you must read them in the right order.
Lizbeth Salander is probably reading this as I type  ;D

Sherlock, BBC1 on New Year's Day - A 900 5-Door Classic in dark metallic green. Lovely condition. Pity they showed it broken down!

I saw that! I recognised it from the interior shot, before they even showed the outside. WASOG.

There's a shiny black Saab behind the white Golf at the end of the "Nothing like a Golf" TV advert.

The reg No. is clearly visible - any way of knowing if that car survives? ...Or would it have been a 'fake' No?
