: Reverse GM Badging?

4th May 2005, 08:04 AM
Wish I'd had my camera with me this morning - saw a Vauxhall (that's Opel to you in Europe/USA) Corsa (that's the smallest car GM make in europe) with, wait for it...........a SAAB badge stuck proudly to its bonnet (hood).

Maybe the GM disease of badge engineering has been taken a step too far here - a SAAB 9-0 or indeed a SAAB 9-0.5!!!:lol:

Seriously though, it does indicate some sense of 'family' creeping through the GM car-owning community that some (presumably) young Corsa owner is even aware that SAAB is now a GM brand. A bit like a Ford Fiesta driver sticking on an Aston Martin or Jaguar badge.

I just hope that bit of fun never gets noticed back in Detroit where they might see it as a good idea!:nono;

THere are Fiestas with Aston badges rolling around over there? :o

Here there is only one Hyundai with Saab 9-.3

I seem to remember a SAAB 99 with a Daihatsu badge ;).
