Nice to see a Peel getting a fine kicking!

things beautiful and excellent, shine forth far better when other people
praise them than when they boast so confidently of their own achievements."

I am impressed that the authers have the engineering qualifications and have been able to test drive such a wide and varied range of automotive products rather than perpetuated various ignorant and untrue steriotypes to come up with this world listing. I thought it was going to be just another cheap item of meaningless filling in one of the 15 worst magazines a man can buy world wide. Then I could be wrong.
