Our Daily Saab: There Is A Connecticut Mascioli With A Long Criminal Record

our daily saab there is a connecticut mascioli with a long criminal record

Is Saab betting on being saved by a man with a mile log rap sheet? We are not talking Vladimir Antonov. We are talking Alex Mascioli.

On Wednesday, Swedish Automobile N.V. including Saab Automobile AB published its 3rd quarter 2011 report. It is a report written in red ink. It talks about the well documented troubles with China and GM. It mentions that there is “a memorandum of understanding for a conditional agreement for the sale of Spyker Automotive business to North Street Capital with net proceeds for Swan of EUR 32 million.”

The report then says:

“The future of Swan will depend on the outcome of these negotiations.”

A lot has been written about the Chinese aspect. Very little is known about the mysterious North Street Capital, LP, of 500 West Putnam Avenue, Suite 400, Greenwich, Connecticut 06830. Some claim it works out of a virtual office. The company is so discrete that its website shows a white page (at least on my browser.) What is known is that the alleged hedge fund is owned by an alleged car enthusiast (aren’t we all) by the name of Alex Mascioli. His track record in the world of car racing and the world of finance is sketchy at best. Whoever hinges the future of Swan on Mascioli and North Street Capital should do some due diligence.

The State of Connecticut has a long rap sheet on an Alexander Mascioli, born in 1975. He is sometimes a Mascioli Alex H, a Mascioli Alex H, a Mascioli Alex Hope, a Mascioli Alexander, a Mascioli Alexander H, or a Mascioli Alexander Hope.

These are just the highlights, the judicial system of Connecticut would certainly be willing to provide details.

A public record search connects all these cases with a Caucasian male of Norwalk CT, who goes by the name of Mascioli, Alexander H, and who was born in August 1975. The same person is listed as having been connected with various domain names, such as autosalonworld.com, certifiedferrari.com, etripdirect.com, ferrariautomobile.com, ferrariconnection.com, ferraridealership.com, ferraridealerusa.com, ferrariowner.com, freehits123.com, italianferrari.com, theferrarigallery.com, vineyardhome.com and worldofferrari.com. (Many of these domains have anonymous registrations, some have been deleted.)

An ALEXANDER MASCIOLI can be found listed as the manager of the Classic AutoSalon in Westport, CT, and then as the owner of C lassicMotorcars Llc in Norwalk, CT. Oddly, what cannot be found is a North Street Capital LP. Connecticut’s Secretary of State has everything from North Street Elderly Housing Corp. to North Street Laundry LLC, but no North Street Capital LP.

Now we are not saying that those Masciolis (or this Mascioli) are the same Mascioli as that of North Street Capital. Who knows, maybe there are lots of Masciolis in the area around Greenwich, CT, all in their mid 30s, all with a penchant for cars, a drink here and there, and an aversion to showing up in court. If Saab’s future hinges on Mascioli, maybe someone should make sure that people don’t get the idea that it’s the same Mascioli that writes bad checks, or the one who was convicted of forgery, criminal impersonation, assault, and driving drunk.

These are trying times for Saab, and with Russian financier and Saab investor Antonov wanted in Lithuania and out on bail in London, Saab should work diligently to avoid misguided impressions that it hopes to be rescued by another jailbird.

    The website www.northstreetlp.com is dead, tried to ping it and it just times out. The IP is hosted by Godaddy.com Inc, Scottsdale Arizona.

    ttela and therefore The Church Of The One True Saab are reporting tonight that the deal is in. It would appear in this deal put together by Youngman and Muller, that PangDa are out & 'someone else' is in. Whoever the mystery new suitor is they are taking 80%, Youngman 20%. Lofalk would seem to be suggesting that this is it. If GM turn it down, its goodnight Trollhatten.

  • Bryan Raab Davis I briefly dated an Australian fellow who was mad for Aspires; one of his better characteristics, if I’m honest.

  • ToolGuy • Not sure who you get when you call the "Company phone" number listed on the recall report, but confident that it ISN'T Ferrari (someone either screwed up or made a conscious exception; recall might need a recall; where is my excellence in government that all of you are funding?).• 99% of them are fine.• On later models, additionally, a message will also appear on the vehicle’s dashboard that reads as follows: “Brake fluid level low, Go to dealer slowly”. That right there is classic.• Anyway, this is what happens when you build to a price point... (ba dum tsh!)

  • Theflyersfan If you ever want a review on a 2022 Mazda MX-5 GT RF, I'll be more than happy to type up a few thousand words and add in some great pictures in front of Churchill Downs for y'all!In a nutshell, I agree with this review. I didn't have a chance to try the Recaro seats because the only test drive available was with another GT that someone backed out in buying so it was being used as a demo. But from what I was told, if you're larger than a 38 waist or taller than 5'10", it gets tight. But with the standard seats, and I'm 5'10" and maybe 20 pounds from the 38 waist, I fit fine. Now getting in and out with the roof up after shoulder surgery (especially leaving the surgery center with most of the right arm under a nerve block) is the total opposite of graceful!!! The look on the nurse's face when the MX-5 pulled up and I'm partially wrapped up like a mummy was priceless.I've had mine since the middle of April and have already put 6,700 miles on it, including round trips from Louisville to Chicago and the Philadelphia suburbs. Averaged 38-39 mpg at a steady 75 mph, and it wasn't a torture chamber. The metal top helped a lot. The standard seats are a bit thin on padding, and there was a bit of squirming by around hour 8 on the Philly drive, but it's possible. But even though this design was released in 2015, I still get compliments from total strangers at stoplights, carwashes, gas stations, restaurants, etc. The Soul Red Metallic paint just makes the car pop. I wish it was available with the Terra Cotta leather (the gray above is available with it), and that it didn't have the standard all in black, because it gets thermonuclear in there with the top down and the sun beating on you, but a minor quibble. But it's just fun. Pure driving fun. The best stick shift in any car today. Solid brakes, excellent handling, a sane amount of power to where you aren't going to get into anything reckless and stupid. After a 12+ hour day at work, there's nothing better than dropping the top and driving the 20 minutes home with the better than I thought it would be Bose stereo playing Moby into my ears through the headrest speakers. Mazda has already announced there will be an NE model so I can't wait for that. It'll be interesting how they will keep the weight down with the expected changes to eke more MPG out of what is already an efficient car.
