Aston Martin Sale Pending

Jalopnik reports that Aston Martin may be closer to a sale than any of us may have previously thought. There are just four contenders left in the bidding, down from about 30 or so in the beginning. Jacque Nasser ( formerly the head honcho at Ford ) is apparently in the running, as well as Simon Halabi, a Syrian billionaire. Now, I’m not a fan of the French people ( in fact, I pretty much don’t like them all together ) , but I’d much prefer Mr. Nasser to get ahold of Aston rather than some secretive bazillionaire from Syria. All in all, I’d like to see Ford hang on to Aston, and dump Jaguar. Anyone else agree?
