REN­O­VAT­ING QUEEN, TV STAR, PRE­SEN­TER AND AU­THOR CHERIE BAR­BER SHARES HER LOVE OF VIN­TAGE STYLE, SALVOS SHOP­PING AND A CAR NAMED MIL­DRED

MIL­DRED THE CHEVVY

“I bought my vin­tage car, a pink 1956 Chevro­let, about five or six years ago. My sparky sent me a link about a clas­sic car auc­tion in Ne­braska. It was in the mid­dle of nowhere. I had to take three planes to get there, drive six hours. You know when some­thing hap­pens in your life and you think, ‘I’m go­ing to re­mem­ber this for­ever’? It was one of those mo­ments. I nick­named her Mil­dred, in hon­our of her for­mer owner. She’s all orig­i­nal and she’s prob­a­bly my most favourite as­set. I love her.”
