Helga rides again

In other news, Helga Saab had a few minor fixes, re-took her MOT and passed! For a car made in 2002 that is getting on to 150,000 miles, I think passing an MOT at a price of only 200 quid (including a new tyre) is pretty good. Well done Helga. Well done, 2002 Swedish engineers, I'm sorry your car company went bust. Well done, Dave the Garage with your stylish-yet-affordable tyres.

ETA, apparently Saab has risen from the ashes and is now National Electric Vehicle Sweden, still based at the splendidly named Trollhättan! Good for them. I bet their cars will be quirky and efficient. Sadly, it's very unlikely I shall ever be able to afford a new car, but I shall send them generalised good wishes anyway.

Well done Dave! (er, do you live in Wales?)

I am so far behind the times, I didn't even realise Saab had gone, let alone come back; but Trollhattan is an excellent name. We saw a mountain-with-a-hole-in with the same name in Norway seven years ago.

No, but I lived in Swansea as a child, and occasionally it still amuses me to label people in the Welsh manner!

Excellent news, so truly those things made in elder days were better quality ;-)
