The final of the Eurovision song contest is less than 24 hours away and I’m almost incontinent with anticipation!!
Could the Lithuanians singing “We are the winners of Eurovision” actually win Eurovision?
Can the Swedes win their 5th title??
Could the Finnish entry actually perform an animal sacrifice on stage (if you’ve seen them you’ll know it’s possible)???
I cannot wait!
If you’re wondering why Saab are going so great in the UK, here’s two reasons.
1. The cars are actually pretty darn good, esp with the diesel option available over there.
2. Press like this, from Alan Candy at Luton Today doesn’t hurt, either:
I first tested the SportWagon last year in Sweden, and was deeply impressed by its looks, versatility, comfort and outstanding handling.
Now I’ve had the opportunity to drive the 9-3 SportWagon for a solid week and get to know it a bit better my mind’s even more firmly made up – this is the best value and most outstanding car in the premium cars segment that money can buy.
Given the choice, even up against the all-conquering BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi, I’d still pick the Saab without hesitation, and more and more drivers are going down the same road.
Auto 123, from Oh Canada (my wife’s home and native land) have a real eye-opener of a story. Well worth your perusal.
According to them, a survey conducted of 18 to 24 year olds in North America looking for a used car found that 1.28% of them would consider any Saab as a possible purchase. That number alone isn’t going to blow your socks off, but consider that neither BMW nor Mercedes Benz made the list (you needed a 1% mark to qualify) and, as I said, it becomes an eye opener.
Young car buyers like these grow up to have bigger incomes and it’s a good thing that they’re seeing Saab not only as a viable alternative, but as a more viable alternative than some of the fancied Euros.
Edmunds came up with a great one: Corn Squad. Snubbed by President Dubya, the head honchos of the Big 3 went to Washington anyway to promote the further adoption and development of e85 as well as other items of interest *cough*healthcare*cough*.
My position for those that give a rat’s…….I’m all for e85 as more HP equals more fun. But for the best of all worlds, I still can’t believe they’re not bringing in the diesels.
Thanks to TuuSaR in comments, here’s the Finnish entry in Eurovision.
What a thoroughly decent looking, clean cut axe murderer!!
