|Saab Vehicles

Saab is a Swedish brand of luxury vehicles. It was the only non-core brand that General Motors was able to sell rather than shut down after emerging from Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2009. Founded in 1944, the company has roots in the Swedish aerospace industry building planes for the Swedish air force. Unfortunately, after a tumultuous few years and many owners, Saab formally went through bankruptcy and what remained was sold to National Electric Vehicle Sweden in 2012.

An evolution of the Saab 99, the 900 was very popular in places like California, New England, and Colorado (where this about-to-be-crushed example was found).
Saab has ruined all Swedish cars for me

Or why I'll never buy a Koenigsegg.

Saabs are one lesson that I've needed to be taught over and over again. And I'm still not sure that I've learned it.
