Sunday Night Snippets

We’ve just got back from a day with a video camera, an Audi S4, a BMW 325ci and my Viggen. What a great day. Yes, I found a new respect for both these carmakers, but I think the Viggen also won a few people over as well.

We have over 3 hours of video to whittle down into something slightly coherent, then it’ll get posted here.

  1. Too bad how fastest is always measured as best zero to sixty time. I’m glad to see Saab finally get the nod over Volvo in the safety category; they’ve deserved that spot for many years.

  2. Glad to see some good cars on here for once, Mr Wade, although I’m currently feeling a bit inferior not having one of those groovy luggage racks on my 95!

    Might I suggest a joyride in the 95 or 96 sometime soon, consdiering how you’ve never had the pleasure.

    Off to peruse eBay for a luggage rack……
