Saab runs out of cash to pay wages







http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110623/ap_on_bi_ge/eu_sweden_saab





By LOUISE NORDSTROM, Associated Press  
STOCKHOLM – Saab's owner said Thursday it doesn't
have the money to pay employees' wages, deepening the financial crisis
that is pushing the struggling Swedish brand ever closer to ruin.






               


Dutch owner Swedish Automobile, previously known as
Spyker Cars, has courted Chinese and Russian investors and put the Saab
factory up for sale in its attempts to revive the brand it took over
from General Motors Co. last year.






               


But after months of production stoppages and problems
with paying suppliers, Saab said the situation is so dire that it won't
be able to pay its 3,700 employees, adding to doubts over how long the
brand can survive.

Lesbians, huh?  Guess I'd better tell my dad the bad news.

Also, I miss the '80s Saabs.

I have never in my entire life known someone who owned a Saab. Come to think of it, I have no clue where the local Saab dealer even is.

What a saab state of affairs.

Whereas most auto makes have at least one cars that catches my fancy, I've never desired any Saab. A friend of mine drives one and I tease him mercilessly over it. It's an automatic too.

I've owned a 1995 Saab 900 that finally gave out at 300,000 miles. My current 2002 93 has 125,000. Both were great cars. I'm not an asshole

ETA: I'm not gay either...
