Default Saab Story

Just this morning I was reading in Hemming's Sports and Exotic Cars how great it was that Saab would be rescued by the Chinese. I guess the celebratory blowjobs were somewhat premature.

Looks like GM did as good a job of managing Saab as they did themselves. Maybe they can talk the Swedish Govt into a bailout.

I can remember back in the 80s, SAAB had some of the coolest products going. A bindle of coke and a 900 Turbo convertible meant you were a playa!

They turned into cars for wonky geeks. An overpriced, unreliable Subaru.
