Depends on whether you could keep the work a secret from my wife! ;-)

I don't know, to be honest. There was a dealership in Rhode Island that used to do the performance stuff (WigWam)...of course, they just closed, too.

if your shop is dedicated just to saabs, you might not do so well.

you should make the shop open to all car owners.

I second...

Depends on what SAAB's you'd want to work on. If it's the 03 on models with the Ecotec motors, then you could do a lot of other, similar cars. Such as the Solstice GXP, Cobalt (and new Turbo SS, which is still a 2.0l Ecotec I believe)

It also depends on what kind of work you'll be doing.

YOU contradicted yourself.

I think I said that in my earlier post. Because he said he wants to open a Saab performance shop.

Thats being specific, I said it would be better to open it up as a general performance shop meaning other cars.

Hey Will,

I tired to send you a PM but your mailbox is over the size limit. I just checked out your car on cardomain and it looks very nice. I have a question regarding your bumper skirt. Where did you get that or did you modify the stock one? I have an '04 9-3 linear and want to get a new bumper skirt so I can get to and see my exhaust.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

J51

There's this place in NJ, I came across them a few years ago when
I had my 2nd 900.

http://www.group9performance.com/saab.html

I guess that would be the competition.

Edit: As I recall they did exhausts. tunes etc. but it seems they've downsized.

a performance shop in Northern NJ would be great. Since alot of the GM cars use similar engines, you could open it as a GM Performance shop, which would probably give you alot more customers as well as a lot more money.
