Trading a fantasy for a Toyota Corolla

Do you need a reminder why a Saab is special? A reminder why Saab needs to survive?

Then you should read Charles Saydah's story of his fantasy car, a Saab 9-3 convertible. And despite the convertible's lack of every day convenience how driving a dull Toyota Corolla makes him long for the Saab 9-3 he traded in.

"A longtime colleague tried to ease my sense of loss by extolling the looks of the Corolla. I appreciated her comforting words, but I told her the Corolla is just a car. It gets me from here to there without worry, but its lack of pickup is a reminder that Saab made jet engines, and Toyota doesn't."
