Quite amusing actually, included on the same page is a report of how the Mazda MX5 has been made 15% more manly..... If you look in their archive, issue 8 asks "what's a SAAB?" and fondly takes the mick out of GM in particular and Americans and Swedes in General, with references to Ikea and ABBA. It's all in good humour and should be viewed that way. Al
