I'm no expert but....

1. Each ramp doesn't appear to be connected to each other. Obviously for different wheel base widths.

2. Don't appear to be connected to the floor. Possibly to allow movement in width and location.

3. The floor is ****ing patio paving slabs, possible uneven load point.

4. The thing appears to be made from crap old pallet racking and mechano.

Doesn't look strong enough box section etc. The end stops on the ramp don't look sufficient.

In theory I've seen these done and done well before. (This isn't one)

Like I say I'm no expert but everything I've ever learned about elf and safety screams no.

Youve looked more closely than I have! It's the sickening few seconds as you pivot in the air, slamming the front end down with 2 tons of middle aged hatchback towards the ground that I wouldn't like,, same feeling I get putting the car up on ramps on one end, that limbo where the wheels are either perfectly fine, or half hanging off, the only way to check being to get out of the car...

Poor Xsara! 33 miles in the last month then 190 in a day! Need to get the rear tyres changed and balanced though, over 70 and everything just gets blurred with the vibrations. Brakes work well too after a near full oh fuck stoppo on the m5 due to an utter dickhead trying to cut across to a junction... Luckily my arse was working too (and my prop didn't get damaged) 

I got to drive through the Black Country Museum too. And be on TV... Better writeup in my thread in the open forum, but what a wicked day!

Yes, it is genuine, one of several well known photos in Saab circles (includes another of a 900 with a VERY large tree on it.

As an aside, back in the day, the Saab 99 was the only production car approved by the FIA for rallying without a roll cage. The 900 (which is basically the same shell) had the A post pillars weakened so it could get better crash test results.

I will go and find my anorak now......

Had to do a delivery into Oxford Street today. Advised the shipper I'd be lucky to make it there by 12.30, and that was a very optimistic ETA.

Sailed in and out, even Finchley Road was quiet. Shipper reckoned it was because London is on the precipice of Tier 3. I advised him to stop showing off with his big words.
