RALPH Magazine Motor Write Up

The BA has officially made it now. Write up in Ralph magazine!

http://ralph.ninemsn.com.au/ralph/motor/default.asp

I now consider Ralph to be of higher journalistic quality than a number of other publications mentioned in these forums.

You only buy it for the articles right...

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

Don't buy it actually, noticed the write up on the web page. There are better magazines to buy for the articles.

I buy them for the articles. I love reading how the girls keep their skin clear and body tone and terrific. I also like the results of their extensive training.

Go FORD!

All we need now is a good write up in FHM! - Me thinks it'd be the perfect magazine if the XR6T and Holy Valance could share the front cover respectivley...

or even with Anna K' - i don't mind

My bloody oath. Morley is by far the best motoring journalist in this fine country. Has a brilliant sense of humour too!
