What does a Saab dealer do in his spare time after a few ales?

He invents a sport – bogboarding.

They asked….

Edmunds are holding a survey to find out what cars people want in 2007.

The deck’s slightly loaded, though. For example, in the Sedans under $35K category you have the Audi A4 and in parenthesis it says “including S4 and RS4” – I’m pretty sure the RS4 might be more than $35K (starts at $66K, actually)

So, I think it’s therefore quite within the right of the average Saabisti to show some support. There’s 32 categories to pick a car for, but you can skip through those you’re not interested in.

This is worthy of a mention given that it’s the month of 9000 lovin, but not worthy of a post on it’s own.

This one popped up recently on my Flickr feed.

The caption says: that’s no drawing or photoshop, that’s a photograph! that’s how awesome my car is. p.s. involved irish whiskey and a contest.

Gunnar from Automobiles Deluxe has a Saab & Cadillac post, citing some mismanagement from GM on both brands.

Whilst he gets points for citing yours truly in there, I feel a little icky being in the same article as Jonny Lieberman.

Unfortunately theres no concrete conclusion there, just a suggested prayer.

And something that’s a blast from the past:

Remember when Saab were at risk of having a model based on the Subaru Tribeca – possibly one of the ugliest cars ever made?

Subaru have decided to remove the incredibly ugly nose from the front of the Tribeca – and their solution?

Build it to look like a Hyundai.
