What cars did your family have when you grew up?
As my dad always put safety first we had a Volvo, it was a V70 I think. It looked like a brick and we called it the big red car. I remember Dad driving a white Corolla that was filled with work papers and junk.
What is your greatest frustration on the road?
Definitely people who don't leave sufficient distance - I had a nasty accident after a man in a big Ute complete with bullbar didn't stop when I stopped. I think it's important to remember safe distance when changing lanes on the freeway too.
Do you have any preferred driving music?
Not particularly, when I am on a long drive in my Proton Prevé I do prefer to listen to whole albums.
If you were to pick anyone in the world to go on a road trip, who would it be?
It would have to be The Stig for sure!
What is your dream car?
Can I have a hovercraft please? Hey, you said dream!
