Well, since I’ve not been around much of late, it’s as if I really ended my involvement with SU some nine or ten months ago. My time pressures will get no better in the next few months, and so I will no longer be around much, either. Like Swade, I’ll have new challenges work wise and with a planned house move on the horizon, Saab networking online will be taking a back seat. I’ll get a number of hours more actually driving the convertible rather than writing about it. I may pop in from time to time with some photos, but that’s the extent of it for now.
Thanks for everyone, especially Steven, for allowing me to participate. It’s been loads of fun and I’ve enjoyed all of it. If you take just a day or two in Steven’s seat, you gain an immediate appreciation for the man and you gain perspective on the prodigious amount of time required to operate SaabUnited. It is overwhelming.
Special thanks to Andy, Grippen, Greg and Golfhunter for ideas and information. Special thanks to Robin for all of the excellent photos and the spirit.
Also, thanks to Mike Colleran, Steve Shannon, Pierre Belperron, Marty Adams, and the late Jan-Willem Vester for being such gracious hosts. It is not forgotten.
P.S. I’ve been saving a screed about how auto dealer compensation is not aligned with consumer interest, but this simply isn’t the time for it to appear here. I’ve posted it on my own (nearly defunct) blog site if you’re interested in my thoughts.
