I really lament the passing of Saab. It’s not that I must only drive cars born of Jets, it’s just that, when slogging though an auto show Saab was always the best place to park my weary keister. I’ve been hitting up car shows for nigh on 30 years now and can tell you from experience that the thin carpet – or worse, unyielding concrete floors – of most convention centers can really get your dogs barking.
But that never bothered me. I could spend the eight or ten hours it took to slide in and out of every car on display secure in the knowledge that Saab was only ever a few halls away with their amazingly cosseting seats. It was like traipsing through the mall knowing that a Brookstone with their insanely expensive – but always sample-able – massaging chairs was just around the corner.
Sadly Saab’s no more, and car shows, at least for me, will never be the same. But what about you, have you found a particular manufacturer that manufactures thrones that are a cut above, seats that treat your ass better than a ten dollar hooker and keep you coming back for more? What, in your experience is the car or truck that gives the best seat?
