Autospeed does it again

Julian Edgar's allegiances are now clear. I’ve just read his comments on the SS Commodore in his latest offering. What a load of vomit, you can’t tell me this bloke is not being looked after by Holden. It seems he is intentionally stirring up Ford fans with his articles. His comments on the SS go against all the remarks made by serious motoring magazines and just proves how ignorant he is when it comes to V8’s. He is a pinhead, cos everything he knows about V8’s can be written on a pinhead in 12pt helvitica. I don't know why I bother going there!

That's probably the one I looked at. If it's an old article why are they reproducing it?.

HSE2 - The article goes on and on about how good the SS is, it's handling is wonderful, it's steering precise, it not only goes fast but it takes corners really well. Woeful points like the brakes and gearbox are glazed over as they are just small points. If he finds the SS to be so good then he needs to 'drive' the XR8 and be honest. I think we should now stop mentioning A.....S....., it doesn't deserve this much exposure!!!!

I used to frequent AS when they had the open forums, but now I just get their weekly (or fortnightly?) email and only visit if I see something of interest. Anyway I read both articles, what crap! Seem's to be almost the opposite of what the big car magazines are saying. What a joke that wanker is!
