A cousin of mine had an ambition to be owning an Aston Martin DB5 by the time he was 21. He managed it by the time that he was 22. It was the worst decision that he ever made. Every time that he went out in it, the police would pull him over. The attitude from them was, "What's this young guy driving around in such a posh car. He must have nicked it. Let's pull him over." Now you would think that eventually the police would get used to this and would stop pestering him. Oh no. It then became a case of "Let's pull (my cousin's) car over, in case another young guy is driving it." It, er, drove him round the bend! Now, had the car been nicked then the thief would have simply roared away and the police wouldn't have had a cat in hell's chance of catching him as, in the 70's, they had absolutely nothing to match it. Oh and yes, the police did stop us when I was in the car. After all, seeing TWO people in the DB5 was just another excuse to pull us over. Of course what they were really after was to find some minor pretext to impound the car and for one of the officers to get to drive it. Jealous or what?

thats what the word dream means ...only a dream to those who could never in their lives afford one

... a car in the garage is a zero.


... I need the car to be ready to go immediately.


... life`s far too short  to be bothering at all with garages.


... cars resemble women :


... a fun young sporty type or


... a mature serious sort ~
