My genius European car mechanic told me the best car to buy in North Carolina is a used Saab of any sort. His reasoning was that they are rarely sold new here, and people from up North buy them at dealerships in NY and Boston and Hartford, then drive them down here to school at UNC or Duke. Once its time to sell, there are no interested buyers, so you can purchase one at a deep discount. Parts are no more than for other cars, and you can drive something no one else has.
I think they should have hired my genius European mechanic as their advertising man, and 86’d the guy or gal that came up with “Born from Jets.”
