Fastlane is taking a summer break, but there’s no rest for the wicked here at Trollhattan (plus, it’s winter here in Oz). I hope the whole of GM ain’t having too big a break. There’s competitors to catch. Why did Magic Johnson never take a holiday? Because he new that every summer, somewhere in Indiana, Larry Bird was out there on the farm shooting baskets, getting better all the time. GM, especially you, Jay Spenchian, get back in the saddle please.
For those of you that have earned a break and are looking for some Saabified summer reading, try these little gems:
Me offering my services to Bob Lutz, to work for Saab in the USA or Canada.
A call to get Saab back into rallying.
Build it and they will come – the 9-3x.
My first open letter to Jay Spenchian, the new head of Saab USA follwing the resignation of DKE (Debra Kelly-Ennis, or Don’t Know Enything).
China’s nice, but home is where the heart is. Another letter to Bob.
Who is Saab’s legitimate competition? Saab Vs….
A look at the future – cars are definitely more than just ‘adequate transport’.
