As you may already know, I am a Swedish car enthusiast. So, when I heard that SAAB owners would be having a rally for the brand at GM’s Renaissance Center in Detroit on my day off, I decided to take part. Sharon and I drove up Tuesday morning and had an interesting day. We were part of several interviews and made it into a number of newspaper pictures, articles, and even an online magazine. But the “neatest” part was when a Massachusetts state senator quoted a line from my article in his letter to the CEO of General Motors. I’m not sure we accomplished a whole lot, but with the brand on the brink of extinction, it was fun to make a public statement and to be a part of history.
