Here’s what Mal wrote:

1. Car Purchased?
Honda Accord Euro – all the mod-cons and by far the best purchase I’ve made (apol’s to Holden Commodore ‘SS’….wow the power but you cost me 50K in 3yrs….

2.Why did you choose that car?
For 40K on the road I couldn’t believe the features that were included in the Accord Euro – Nav, Reversing Cam, CD stacker, Sun roof, Alloy wheels, Seat warmers (for the girlfriend) crazy auto headlights that turn when you turn and even headlight washers!!!!

3.What was your first car?
Datson ‘SSS’ Stanza with built in sway bars – it’s a mystery how I survived owning this vehicle growing up on ‘perfect rally’ dirt roads!!

Buggati Veyron for sure!!!  I’m close to putting down a deposit on one and I reckon I can talk them down to 8 million flat!!!

5. What is the worst car you have ever driven?
Careful Cobber driving training centre in Shepparton gave me this experience – top speed was 5km’s as hour!!! (I was only 10 I guess…)

6. Most embarrassing moment in a Car?
This is easy and clearly the reason I’m not a teacher.  I had just finished training my Brazilian girlfriend on the finer points of driving in Australia and during the debrief on the way home I missed the speed limit change from 80k’s to 60k’s.  For the record I don’t think the officer believed my story but it was true!!!!

Uh oh...

Uh oh…

Congratulations again Mal!
