They do around here - most of them. What I don't get is all the people who want to play. I'm just cruising along minding my own business, then wham.....someone is playing. It's just fun to win so many times. > Ok, now it's your turn: I want to hear your happy Saab story (and, > Viggen owners, I especially want to hear from you). I have so many!! My favorite is playing with a VW Jetta (I know!) I was in the SPG going down a three lane highway doing about 10mph over the speed limit when he comes flying past me. Then he switches to my lane and slows way down, so I passed him. He did it again, then started tapping his brakes. I moved to the slow lane, so did he. I was getting pissed, so I down-shifted and left him in the dust - big time. He was trying with all his might. I slowed back down to normal and resumed driving and he goes flying by again flipping me off, while I was laughing. But the best part was about 5 miles down the road, I saw him pulled over by a state policeman. I couldn't resist.....I beeped and waved! Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Share what you know.
