Ok so we have a POS Peugeot but that doesn't mean that every Peugeot is a POS, does it? Ok so far that's been true of every one I've seen in person here in the states, but elsewhere in the world I've heard rumors that there are actually new Peugeots which run well and are shiny and everything! And get this people actually race them and spend a few more than the $500 we're spending in the process!
Well it turns out that several Peugeots 908s actually participated in the real 24 Hours of Le Mans this year. Not only that but they almost won! Perhaps this is a good omen? The Pug guys had to settle for second place behind the winning Audi but they beat a lot of great cars including Porsches, Corvettes and the other Audis. Not too bad for a company that saw fit to abandon the States over 15 years ago, huh? We're hoping that some of this almost-winning tradition will rub off on our car!
