Going to be a busy weekend here. I play in a band and we have a rehearsal and gig on today (you can hear 1 song here).
Then tomorrow there’s a car club thingy on that’ll be primarily concerned with car detailing, paintwork care etc (and the consumption of BBQ products). Here’s the trickling of news. It’s all quiet around here.
From the It’ll-never-happen-but-I’m-watching-just-in-case department: The Porsche AG annual shareholder meeting, the one where they were going to discuss permitting acquisitions outside Germany, has been held. I’m waiting to hear the outcome and will post it when it’s made public.
From the I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-butter department: Several news sources (here’s one syndicated report) are reporting that Moody’s Investors Service are considering lowering GM’s stock rating to below "junk" status. I’m not sure what rating is below "junk". Is it "pondscum"?
In response to my thoughts on what Saab should be achieveing in 2006 – Jason wrote in about Saabs in Asia, or Hong Kong at least, and it seems that they’re basically unknown and almost nonexistant. Beemer and Benz territory only, apparently. Thanks for the insight. I know there’s a presence in Malaysia, but the rest of Asia is, as always in most things, a bit of a mystery.
