Default Saab

I am sure at least some of you have heard the news. GM has less than 24 hours to decide if they will keep my beloved car company alive or send it to the history books.

Anybody have any thoughts on this? is there even anybody here who knows what a SAAB is???

I've never been a huge fan of SAAB. They have a rich history and it would be a shame if they ceased operations. It looks like Spyker is bailing them out though so that's great news. It's such a big brand and it has some high end market potential so I don't see it going anywhere.
Automotive News reports that after announcing Saab would be shut down in the absence of an acceptable buyer, GM "said it would evaluate several expressions of interest for Saab, including a new fast-track bid from Spyker Cars NV."
They have some cool historical videos here: http://www.saabhistory.com/videos/

Do you work for SAAB or just a big fan of the brand?

No, i'm just a fan. it is all i have owned besides a ford escort that i had for 3 months. i am buying another within the month (a 1973).

There is still 4 hours left in Spyker's offer so i am very tense at this point...
