Some history about Saab Cape Cod and Kurt Vonnegut:

The dealership only lasted four years. Vonnegut wasn't a fan of the cars: http://www.inthesetimes.com/article/1726/

It probably didnt help that he spent his time there writing instead of selling Saabs: http://www.saabapedia.org/kurt-vonnegut%E2%80%99s-saab-dealership

Now I've come full circle. My literary interests now loosely intersect with my car. How pleasingly strange, like my 900.

I wonder what Ayn Rand's dealership would have been like.
