    The NEVERENDING Car Thread.

    I thought that this would be a good addition to the NEVERENDING line of fine Cyburbia threads - Cars



    Any thoughts on the likely sale of Saturn to Roger Penske?

    Me? This one I really like because Penske is a 100% car guy - he knows a little something about them, owning a successful chain of auto and truck leasing and auto parts stores, and is into auto racing BIG TIME.

    I am glad to see the brand live on. I had a '95 SL1 and loved it. We put 60k on it in 2 years and never had a warranty issue

    I'm hopeful because it's Penske. Still, he's going to have to fight the old GM way of doing business and the UAW to make it work. I wish him luck.

    I am strangely ambivielent. Penske may use this as a way to quickly open Smart car franchises (he bought Smart car from Chrysler/Dahlmer when they had their divorce).

    The HQ will most likely stay in Detroit though, Penske is one of Detroit's largest cheerleaders.
