This is the most stupid thing i have ever read. Those "comfy" car names are akin to people who go to pepsi cola web sites and who watch too much fucking television. The numbers that designate SAAB cars demonstrate HISTORY in the car maker. The numbering goes back to the first airplanes they made. And the numbers are an "engineer" thing and this i why we love saabs because they are excellently engineered. Saabs are not for the general public, they are for thinking people. The 'comfy' car names are for people who have no imagination and need these hokey-ass names for inspiration because they are BRAIN DEAD. It is just like the idiots who invent names for housing developments, like "Rolling Meadows" or "Thousand Oaks". There were never 1000 oak trees in that devlopment. Just like a "Malibu" is not made or designed or driven for that matter in Malibu CA. Malibu is full of rich people who drive EUROPEAN cars with NUMBERS for names. I suppose you will celebrate the new milenium on Jan 1 2000. WAKE up it is Jan 1 2001. It is called being a lemming, these are the people who cannot think for themselves.
