Mother Superior

Here's some British Saab humor:
I just went for a blast in my 9-5 base model—its old but runs so true. I went up over the Wiltshire downs (hills) in the snow between Avebury and Marlborough. We have a road about 10 minutes from the house that Top Gear regularly use for testing and filming. It is a fast, descending (or ascending) double switchback double hairpin with a fast exit with good sight lines. It is a sort of Swiss/Italian pass...

I charged at it in 3rd gear—only to have to slow and pull over when a 9-3 NG cabrio turbo came hurtling down the hillside. Silver it was, with a blue hood and Alu 36 alloys with the aero body kit. So what? It was driven by — an old, female, nun — in uniform — complete with the head gear stuff. She smiled and shot past on turbo boost...

That was one superior mother...
