1990 MAZDA EUNOS ROADSTER
My favourite moment of the tour
Watching the cars roll into the McDonald’s car park for the start of our not-so-exotic tour to California – and opening a book on who would be last to arrive (or not turn up at all). We had bet on Nick’s Austin Cambridge being the last to show, but amazingly it arrived bang on time, before my trusty Mazda and David’s BRM. News editor Scullion (who knows a thing or two about deadlines) wasn’t far behind, but as the car park filled up with classics, one parking space remained all too obviously empty – until James Sadlier’s Ford Mondeo rolled into view, just in time for its driver to enjoy a double sausage and egg McMuffin. James never misses an opportunity for a McDonald’s breakfast!
