Four miles from where I live is a Saab agency, and where I live is prime Saab country. You have to know that around 70% of new car sales in Britain are company cars, the car comes with the job.
It is a strange world, the world of the fleet car. For many years it was ruled by Henry, then The General did a very clever thing – The General gave away sunroofs. When sales reps got together, a sunroof became the hottest thing there was. In Britain, you can hardly buy a car without a sunroof, though given our climate, they are about as much use as men’s tits.
