1 Let’s start with some word as­so­ci­a­tion. What’s the first thing that comes to mind when I say: Mit­subishi Pa­jero: Parked on the side of the road. Honda Jazz: Girl’s car Ford Fal­con: Last year BMW740i: Old man

Chrysler 300C: Drug dealer Toy­ota Prius: Gree­nie Nis­san GT-R: Rice rocket

Holden Com­modore: Win­ner

2 First car you owned? The first car I owned was a Dat­sun 1200 Ute. I bought it with my own money, and as you do when you’re younger you soup it up, so I put a 4AGZE su­per­charged 1600 thing in it. It went pretty well for a lit­tle old ute, that’s for sure. 3 What’s your cur­rent drive? HSV Se­na­tor. I reckon it’s an un­be­liev­able value-for-money car. It’s com­pet­ing against 5 Se­ries BMWs and Mercs and it’s less than half the price. It’s come a long way in the past few years— I’d def­i­nitely buy one.

4 Which car are you em­bar­rassed to say you like? Awww, what would it be? I’d prob­a­bly say the new Ca­maro. Rus­sell In­gall just bought one. I think they look pretty good but I’d never ad­mit it to him be­cause I al­ways shoot him down about it.

5 What car would you abol­ish and why? The Mit­subishi Magna. When­ever I see one I get an­gry, I don’t know why. I just re­ally dis­like them for some rea­son. Sorry to all the Magna-own­ing read­ers out there!
