Anonymous asked: What are the best cars you've driven?
We’ll do a top 5, in the order I most enjoyed them:
BMW Z4M coupe
Supercharged BMW M roadster
Mercedes-Benz S550 (on the Autobahn)
BMW E92 M3
Mercedes-Benz 220SE W111 convertible
What about you guys?
When chapmen billies leave the street,
And drouthy neibors, neibors meet,
As market days are wearing late,
An’ folk begin to tak the gate;
While we sit bousing at the nappy,
And getting fou and unco happy,
We think na on the lang Scots miles,
The mosses, waters, slaps, and styles,
That lie between us and our hame,
Where sits our sulky sullen dame.
Gathering her brows like gathering storm,
Nursing her wrath to keep it warm.
This truth fand honest Tam o’ Shanter,
As he frae Ayr ae night did canter,
(Auld Ayr, wham ne’er a town surpasses
For honest men and bonie lasses.)
Anonymous asked: What old race cars would you like to own?
I’d do some pretty terrible things for an ALPINA 2002, a Porsche 917, an Aston Martin DBR1, a Mercedes-Benz W125 and an Auto Union Type D. Terrible, terrible things.

Your dad loved boxy cars before you did and he’s rolled a MkII Ford Cortina 1600E to prove it.
His squared-off chariot rolled hate into haters hearts and had a backseat that dropped panties quicker than a laundry hamper. It was four corners of pure class and perfected lines that hugged more that just road’s curves.
So hipsters, when you’re Vintage Volvo dreaming, or lusting after that late model E-30, remember this…
Your dad is the reason those cars are considered “Used,” and it’s not because he drove them first.
