I Liked It So Much, I Bought the Company

Saab is for sale on ebay. No, not a Saab, although there are plenty of those, but Saab, as in, the company. Although if you scroll down a bit the fine print reveals seller is just offering his "consulting services" to General Motors for a day. Mhm.

It raises a fair question though. I can't really imagine spending ten grand on a Saab, not with the SPGs I'm looking at going for between two and three, but the whole company? Is ten grand worth the headache of inheriting a hopelessly irrelevant product line and the responsibility of rescuing this proud brand from extinction? How hard would it be to retool all the factories and just start building 99s again?
