Autocar article
« on: 15 July 2006, 14:42:48 »

Autocar weekly dated 12 July 2006 has this article on the inside last page:

Title:

Caned but able: High-mileage heroes revisited
No 54 Vauxhall Omega

From the text:

‘…the fun of watching motorway traffic brake sharply and scuttle into the inside lane at the first glimpse of a white Omega [in the rear-view mirror]’

‘Think of it as the un-wanted love child of a Monaro and a pair of slippers.’

Read and enjoy while it’s still available – it’s only a weekly.
