CELEBRITY CAR: WOULD YOU?
KEITH ADAMS EDITOR
If there’s one for me, it’s something driven by Minder’s Arthur Daley. Perhaps the Vauxhall Royale or Rover SD1 from series two.
GERVAIS SEYMOUR PRODUCTION EDITOR
I am deeply jealous of a colleague who recently sold an MGF that used to belong to former Brookside babe Anna Friel. Kate Moss was a regular passenger in it, apparently. So, yes, I would.
DAVID SIMISTER FEATURES EDITOR
As far as I’m concerned my own B-road blasters are celebrity cars in their own right. They make me feel like a star every time I drive one.
MURRAY SCULLION NEWS EDITOR
There are some bargains to be had. Surely a car owned by a cast member from The Only Way is
Essex would be worthless?
CALUM BROWN WEB PRODUCER
Depends on the celebrity. If it was someone like Christopher Lee, Oliver Reed or Roger Moore, then yes. If it was Katie Price, no.
RICHARD GUNN SENIOR CONTRIBUTOR
Yes, because then I could tell passengers that they’re sitting in the same spot as whomever. And then gauge how much I like them by their interest or lack of it.
GILLIAN CARMOODIE CONTRIBUTOR
Although the appeal of celebrity ownership is obvious, I’d have to love a car in itself before being swayed towards purchase because of its previous owners.
