From the archive:

1991 - My first car. Yeah he was ugly, yeah he was affectionately known as 'Ballbag' and yeah, he gave me a black eye when the handbrake cable snapped with a lot of force and I punched myself in the face, but it shifted and I got it to over 100mph on the M6 in this state. I'd actually been in a smash in him a week earlier and much of the black on the wing etc is insulating tape that I used to stick it all back together with...

Ah, the good old days
