A Swift re­sponse

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Your Letters -

Loved the 15 June ar­ti­cle on the MkI Suzuki Swift GTI. I had one, my first brand new car in Au­gust 1987, picked it up at mid­night on the first of the month from the Suzuki dealer in Wim­ble­don. I ran it in and then took it on a tour of Your Let­ters, The Edi­tor, CCW, I read with in­ter­est your 15 June news ar­ti­cle about the Paris ban on pre-1997 ve­hi­cles, tar­get­ing emis­sions as the rea­son. I won­der if our friends in the mayor’s of­fice will in­clude all Audi-VW group diesel cars in the ban?

Af­ter all, they are emit­ting 10 times the al­lowance and no cars have yet been fixed. And isn’t it in­ter­est­ing that the UK sees fit to stop is­su­ing tax discs (at huge ex­pense to the trea­sury due My daugh­ter re­cently bought me a com­plete DVD box set of The Saint, star­ring Roger Moore as Si­mon Templar. There are dozens of films to watch, last­ing about an hour each and with no ad­verts! It’s well worth get­ting a set, just to spot all the lovely old cars and lor­ries that ap­pear.
