    Well after reading the last paragraph, all I can say is that there are some people in this World who we might spend our lives trying to decide whether they are absolute idiots or not whilst others open their mouths and remove all doubts.
    That is one of the latter. They love to hear themselves talk regardless of whether they are talking from experience or as in this case, old wives tales.

    I sort of hoped that his comments were tongue-in-cheek, but I'm not really familiar with his writing style, so he may have been serious. Worst part about it is many people will take him seriously!

    "Déesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Déesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Déesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.

    I suppose in all reality, it's no worse than some of the comments that some of the types post on here at times; maybe he's a member?? (you look & I'll point!!)

    I'm sure he's right about Porsche unreliability, though...

    Time for me to take up Ballet I guess?

    One of the reasons I bought a Peugeot for my first car is because I didn't want to be a stereo typical aussie guy

    "All of its cars from the 1.1 litre 205 through the ugly duckling 309 to the 2.2 litre 505 GTi had a rightness and a righteousness about them that turned every humdrum drive into a journey. Someone, I once wrote, in the bowels of Peugeot understands handling and how a chassis should feel." - Jeremy Clarkson
