A Blue Saab

I am a sentimental old fool I know. But it is with a tear in my eye that I learn today that the Swedish Car maker Saab is to be wound up by its parent Company, the Detroit giant, GM. I have never owned one, but did for a while covet the sleek Swedish siren, and now never shall. But most of all I am concerned for our friend Fjaril - whatever will he do now that his blue Saab maybe the last of its kind?

I think he should store it in a climate-controlled garage, polish it every day, and just wait for about 20 years. Then he can sell it to a collector for an ungodly sum and retire in style.

I think that he will like that idea. Of course he'll need something else to get to the store with!

I knew he should have kissed that frog that landed on his hand. He might have gotten 3 wishes out of the deal. A lot could have been done with those wishes....

hi pikefish ah you just have a soft heart, I always thought that those did look kinda neat too.So they will be no more. I did not know that GM owned them, how odd, but thats the beauty of mylot as I learn something every day here. So fjaril has a blue Saab well I bet he will cherish it even more knowing he cannot replace it with a new one. thats sad kinda too when you think about it.

I wouldn't be too surprised if a last minute deal is made with one of the parties that have been negotiating to purchase the company. Saab has such a long history it really would be a shame if it ended.

I always have thought fjaril was female, it means "butterfly"

If that is the case then "she" is a very masculine woman Elic.

I guess so, but I'm not disappointed, just the opposite - since I AM female...

Well he could wait 25 years, keep it in mint condition and auction it back to a Swedish collector on E-Bay and buy a Mercedes with the profits! LOL GM has dropped a lot of lines this past year and many favs are going to the scrap heap. Such a shame..............

Buy a Mercedes Sparky. As a colleague once told me when I suggested such a thing to him: Why buy a car that almost every country in the World uses as a taxi? (Cos it's reliable I suppose is the answer).
