Well, another automaker falls to the mighty sword of bankrupcy court.  Kudos to GM for not finding a way to save this once proud & profitable little brand that they slowly and painfully destoyed over their years of inept stewardship (I am hoping my sarcasm rings clear) to the point where going out of business made more sense then selling it.

I can remember that hippo shaped Saab many years ago, with that transmission you had to press down to get it into reverse.  Quirky? Yep. But man did they have a loyal following.  Their cars where getting over 30 MPG when conservation was only a term we used in physics to describe the transfer of energies.

RIP SAAB, it was great knowing you.

It was a proud moment back in 1987 when I became a member of the SAAB griffin society. I worked for them for 8 years after until just after GM took over and started destroying the company with the godawful 9000CDE which never sold until GM put $10,000 in trunk money on them. That was their answer then and it is their answer now. Farewell old friend.
