It’s funny, you know. Jay Spenchian’s job description has him as the head honcho for Saab in the USA. And I think he actually believes it! Perhaps what he needs to realise a little more (or maybe it’s Rick Wagoner’s duty to get this) is that when he speaks, there is a whole Saab online community around the globe that’s listening.
Which is why I don’t get it when post after post comes out on the GM Fastlane website and none of them are written by Jay Spenchian. Today’s post is by Tom Kowaleski and relates to the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance and how all these people driving exotic Ferraris and Lambos were drooling over the Pontiac Solstice.
Fantastic. Another good seller for GM. I’m all for it.
But what I really want to know is why Jay couldn’t have been asked to post on the Saab Owners Conference. Like the Pebble Beach Concours, the SOC just took place recently and like Tom, Jay attended the event. He even got up to speak to the faithful and despite getting ‘hissed’ by some ass-clowns, I’m sure there would have been something great to say about the event.
Here’s the tip.
Jay, I know that you’re the head guy for Saab in the USA. I live in Australia and I have no idea who your equivalent in Australia is (whoever you are, drop me a line and I’ll publish whatever you have to say). I’d imagine that nearly every other non-US Saab enthusiast that reads this blog would be in the same boat.
You, my friend, have the floor. And the audience is keen to hear what you have to say.
If you don’t want to use Fastlane, then do it here. I get 60,000+ page views a month. Whilst Fastlane gets more traffic, I’ll bet it doesn’t get that many Saab enthusiasts reading it.
Wherever you want to post, just do it. Please. A transcript of what you had to say to the SOC and your impressions of the event would be a fantastic gesture to the Saab community.
