Hobokenpix: Sad Saab

[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photo of the Day – 1/19/2010

Took this photo of the Park on Park garage (1415 Park Ave.) the other day – and wondered if this semi-beat up red Saab on the roof deck had any feelings, what would he (or she) be thinking? Just seemed quite lonely up there all by itself.

I always wanted a Saab. But even before GM torpedoed Saab, their designs had become a lot less distinctive.

Seinfeld drove a Saab on his TV show. GM really did a number on a once great brand. The writing was on the wall when they stuck a Saab badge on a Chevy Trailblazer. I better stop Saabing.

So many Saab stories.

That’s so strange. This makes 2 abandoned late 1980’s Saab 900’s I’ve seen left alone in a parking lot. The other one is on Route 10 and Ramada Dr (near COSTO) in East Hanover. The second one’s gray with some damage to the front left side, bumper half on the ground.

When I was a kid, these cars were odd, but cool. The only car to have a lower drag coefficient driving backwards rather than forward.

GM? GM? What the f**k was I thinking? I had better offers but I thought GM would be reliable and not break my heart. They break up with ME? I can’t ever show my face at so much as a Tijuana Pep Boys. Well, it sure has been a crazy ride, had some good times…VROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
