= Another milestone reached… =

My 2004 Saab 9-5 aero auto just crossed the 350,000 km milestone. I’ve had it since 20009 and in 2013 I added a Maptun bioethanol kit ( fitted by a garage in Belgium) so it’s running 385 bhp

Over the last few years I’ve added a few other vehicles so it’s not racking up the mileage line it was at the start ( bought it at 110,000 km ). Travelled all around Europe with it..the most comfortable seats I’ve ever sat it

My daily is a 2005 Volvo S60r. Also got Peugeot 205 GTI 1.9, Opel calibra turbo, Toyota supra biturbo,, and a Nissan R34 ( running 750 bhp fitted in UK). Previously owned a Saab 9-3 Viggen and a Saab 9000 when I lived in the UK I sold my C70 T5 and 850 T5 last year

Only a few people have recognized my cars. All my work colleagues prefer nice shiny SUVs or German saloons. They call my Saab ‘as prehistoric as the Vikings’, though when I accelerate from a autoroute/autobahn toll gate they don’t have the same opinion! ( and it costs me a whole lot less to fill up). The Nissan R34 skyline only comes out for the occasional outing ( spring/summer) and I clocked it officially at 3.2 secs 0-100 km/h and i got it up to 292 km/h on a de restricted German autobahn before I backed off. The Toyota supra has turbo/software upgrades is running about 620 bhp. 0-100 km/h is 4 seconds. The Nissan is glued to the road, the Toyota is faster mid range. Absolutely rock solid reliability. One German colleague tuned his to 1100 bhp

Previously i owned a Mazda 6 mps, a Mitsubishi 3000gt, Renault 5 turbo 1, Peugeot 405 T16, Opel lotus omega, Opel Manta, Nissan 300zx, Ford escort Cosworth, a few years ago as well as two Americans ( a 2005 Mustang GT 500 Shelby and a 68 Dodge Charger ) all since sold

My house had a barn with room for about a dozen cars so I filled it up
Childhood dreams were Japanese/American sports cars not Italian exotica! I went a bit crazy after my divorce… I couldn’t find a gf so I spoilt myself instead!!
