I would like to belatedly add my best wishes to Mark and family. I haven’t said anything so far because I couldn’t find comforting words to say, but I did think about Mark every day. I imagine many others may have done the same. However, I should have said something, at least a godspeed.
I like what Angelo wrote and wish I had said something similar.

How to ruin a good mood and get depressed: Take a lunch break and search for Saab news.
First, a Saab Safir 91B crashed, killing the 2 occupants, as reported by Flightglobal.
Second, Svenska Dagbladet is reporting that Mahindra and Dongfeng want Saab for a pittance (who could blame them), and if it doesn’t get done very quickly, it could be the…[Read more]
And lest everyone forgets, there was the 300 hp Saab V8 for the 9000 that Saab proposed to their new partner GM for production. GM nixed the idea and pushed the Opel V6 on Saab. Just Google for Saab V8.

To me at least, that’s a very wonderful idea! Bought my first Saab in 1967 in a mom and pop shop (Saab/Triumph) with one part-time mechanic. I still fondly remember one day when I went in to buy parts to reline my worn out clutch. Didn’t know what I needed, but the owner (Amos Flick) laid a bunch of parts on the counter and said “Here. Take these.…[Read more]
The Chinese are certainly trying, from what I’ve read. The good ole USA is just leaving it to private investors. But, the fact that there is private money in LFTR research makes me optimistic that it’s the energy of the future. And, as you said, we could still have clean ICE vehicles.
I guess Steve Blass is still a mystery, remember it well. Just Googled and found they call it the “Steve Blass Disease” when it happens to others, but still a mystery.
Sure wish there was good Saab news to discuss but it’s likely to be mid-July, if ever.
Yes, 3rd stadium, but to me the Pirates will always be Forbes Field with Clemente rifling throws in from right field. I spent a year at Carnegie Tech in 1961. Walking around downtown, you could hear the game from someone’s radio on almost every street corner. Ask anyone “What’s the score?” and they would know. Times change.
A little cause for optimism for June wages from Just-Auto”
“I asked them [NEVS] – can you pay salaries in June?” FKG managing director, Fredrik Sidahl, told just-auto from Sweden.
“The answer was reptile quick – yes no problem.”
From a Pirates fan for 56+ years, I agree. I’m just hoping that the new Saab will have a soul similar to the pre-1990 Saab. That’s the one thing I want to stay the same. Actually I think Saab had the same fighting spirit right up through the Spyker days. It was GM that held it in check.

Although I am not a fan of all the nanny technology on cars today, this is a technology I would like very much. I drive a lot of winding rural roads which also have a fair amount of traffic. I get really tired of repeatedly flipping the dimmer switch. Most people just give up and drive on low beam all the time even though the speed limits are high…[Read more]

Thank you NEVS and SU. I appreciate the forthright explanation and the fairness NEVS is exhibiting toward their employees.

Yes, I hope this is resolved quickly. It was foot-dragging that killed the original Koenigsegg deal because the lost time damaged the brand too much for their business plan to work (same one Spyker relied on). Every lost day, and the bad publicity, increases the damage. Please, please get a deal done!
