My Dream Car
June 19, 2016 11:07am CST
I don’t drive, but if I did, what kind of car would I want? I’m not one for big loud gas guzzlers or phallic status symbol sports cars. I’d probably settle for a vintage model, the sort of car used in Genevieve, or a Chitty-Chitty Bang-Bang car, which was classy even without wings and hovercraft skirting. I find so many modern cars devoid of style or comfort. Though an obvious safety guard I find passenger seat belts uncomfortably restrictive and often struggle even to get one to work before a journey. I used to love Doctor Who’s Bessie in the John Pertwee years, a vintage car able to run at speeds Grand Prix drivers would envy. That’s the car for me. Arthur Chappell

There was a time when I wanted a cherry red Karman Ghia with mag wheels and a t-bar roof. Then I wanted a Fiat X1/9 which I could not possibly fit into. Right now I'm happy with anything that will get me from point a to point b without costing me too much on fuel.
