Congratulations to Ivan!!
Some of you may remember that Ivan put together a short video to promote the custom Saab T-shirts that he designs.
Our T-shirt producer, Spreadshirt, have featured the video on their Spreadshirt blog today!
I don’t recall seeing a paint scheme like this at the Saab Festival in Sweden, and now that I’ve seen this CGI screenshot from Forza2, I’m wondering why the heck I didn’t see a paint scheme like this in Sweden.
For one, it seems like a perfectly obvious thing to do. And second, it doesn’t too bad at all.
Could Russian owned Saabs ever be built in China?
A Russian GAZillionaire has just purchased a 5% block of GM stock on the open market. Whether this is the first of many purchases is yet to be seen, but it’ll be interesting to watch.
And an Automotive News email this morning told me that Chery are going to be building Alfas and Fiats in the next year or so. Whilst Chinese car-building efforts so far have left a little to be desired, the trusting of Chery with a brand like Alfa (i.e. a brand with a passionate following that’s in the midst of rebuilding) tells me that the Chinese must be getting their act together more than we realise.
Just wait until India makes big noises in manufacturing….
I’m still waiting on the insurance company. I called them this morning thinking that by Wednesday they’d have an answer and was curtly told that there’s other investigations ahead of mine and that they will get in touch by the end of the week.
The fact that I’ve been without a car (read this is as “without legs”) for two and half weeks means little-to-nothing, despite the fact that this is what I pay premiums for. I just want to know the initial decision – will they cover it or not? If I can get that answered then at least I can move forward.
It’s so hard to be patient and courteous on the phone with a guy who’s basically telling you to pull your bottom lip up over your head and swallow. He’ll make the decision in his own good time.
