Interview with Bob Sinclair – reprise

Former SaabUSA chief, Bob Sinclair, graces us with his presence every now and then here at He did so a few days ago, leaving some encouraging words for Jan-Ake Jonsson via the comments section on the Dagens Industri interview article.
Bob’s one of the largest figures in the history of Saab. Anyone who drives a Saab Convertible drives a little bit of Bob around with them everyday.
In January 2008, I had a stopover in California on my way to the Detroit Auto Show and along with 1985Gripen, I met both Bob and his wife, Anne, at their home in Santa Barbara. A few months later, in March, I recorded an interview with Bob over the phone.
I featured this interview at Trollhattan Saab at that time, but thought I’d load it up again here at SaabsUnited. I hope those of you who are new to this site might enjoy hearing it for the first time and those who’ve already heard it, I hope you might enjoy it again.
The interviews play back via video, so if you have trouble viewing video on this site, please click here for part 1 and click here for part 2.
If you get video OK here, then the interview is waiting for you after the jump.

Eric Geers: I would be naive to say that everyone is extremely confident that everything will be OK in the future. I think people have a belief in the fact that we have done the right things. The thing is that you cannot influence the economic situation. We don’t know exactly when the end of this is going to be. That’s the scary part.
