The first car I learnt to drive in was a wagon on Otterspool tip in South Liverpool, now it is the site of the Garden Festival , on the road it was a Rover 2000 TC, reg. no. SKU 106J, I wonder where that car is now?
The first car I owned was a Triumph Spitfire 1300 MK4, reg. no. PXJ 476J in red with white alloys and a white roof, what a car, my parents bought it to get me off motorbikes, it didn't work.
The cars I own at the moment are a Mercedes CLK 320 AMG, BMW M Sport Convertible, and a Mercedes 250 SLK AMG.
The favourite cars that I owned where a 1971 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and a 1989 Toyota Hi-Lux Pickup, long story, I did what Top Gear couldn't, I broke it.
My dream car is a Mercedes CLK Black Edition.
My Dad got me interested in cars, I was brought up around them all my life and my Mum was a member of Liverpool Motor Club and used to race at Aintree back in the day, apparently when I came along, she had to stop racing, I don't think she ever forgave me for that. One of my earliest memories is watching my Dad hand paint a MK2 Jaguar Mustard as it was his favourite colour, it was Maroon before and perfectly fine, it wasnt when he had finished it.
My favourite person dead or alive is without question James Hunt, I was so lucky to have a coffee with him once in an airport in Italy on our way home from the Italian Grand Prix, I paid, such a charming, warm, and interesting man who had time to sit and talk to me and my pals. Whoever says never meet your hero's is wrong, one of the best days of my life.
