    Re: Penske to Buy Saturn

    Does that mean we'll now see Saturn in NASCAR?

    Re: Penske to Buy Saturn

    I've been a GM supporter for years, but I would like nothng more than to see Penske take over and turn it into a huge money maker. A fresh approach might be what the industry needs right now. It would be fitting to see "A Different Kind of Company" turned around by a different kind of thinking.

    Re: Penske to Buy Saturn

    I think he'll do good things with the brand. I've always thought Saturn had built a good reputation. The Unions never liked it however as evidently some of their business practices went against their core beliefs.

    My nephew was an electrician for GM and therefore worked in the UAW. He is a hard worker, and the UAW membership didn't appreciate that. Many, many bad stories of lazy work, taking advantage of their power, etc. There is no wonder car manufacturers are relocating operations in the South.

    Does Penske have NASCAR ties? I'm thinking we might see Saturn in the INDY 500!

    Penske owns the #2 and #12 Dodges at least (Ryan Newman is one of his drivers)

    I think that might be a stretch but we'll see. It took a long time for Toyota and Dodge to get in. But if he is the major owner it sure could help its chances. Good luck to him for sure!

    He was one of his drivers...Newman left this year to join Tony Stewarts new team...Penske fields three cars in NASCAR...the 2, 12 and 77...Penske isnt as successful in NASCAR as he is in open wheel racing.....but as far as Saturn goes I think this might be a good thing....I bought a Saturn for a beater car once and beat the crap out of it and it kept going....it was a very good car

    If he can purchase the company free and clear of the UAW contract he may have a chance. If not, this will just be a slow death.
