    Questions from 45bvtc

    FOUR related questions for Daytona500: we're ALL 100% the best/fastest drivers, no
    argument, so whilst driving safely, describe:

    Q1) The biggest mistake you made and got away without a scratch
    A1) Took a long sweeping bend too fast coming off a motorway in a Peugeot and spun off into
    long grass; had to get a tow-truck to get me out, luckily no damage to the car.

    Q2) That one (oops!) mistake you made that ended up in a contact that wouldn't 'polish-out'
    A2) My mistake was taking the wrong road and ending up in an accident that wasn't my fault:
    an elderly man pulled out in front of me and my Mercedes needed more than a bit of T-cut.

    Thanks Sandra, as i said before it was a hard act to follow after 45bvtc but as Ghost initiated the topic i think it only right that he should be the next candidate.

    Thank you Sandra for setting the post up... the threads looking good :icon_thumright:

    Thanks Daytona for taking the time to answer the many questions.. :hi:

    I like your choice of music, but shame on you for putting what is undoubtedly your loooove for ll Divo onto your mum!! :no: :lmfao:




    Daytona… “Suzy Perry, a great looking action girl with all the curves in the right places, and as a
    bonus she's a petrol head.
    ”

    I couldn’t agree more.. :icon_thumright:

    Your RS3 and Mercedes look stunning!!

    Superb answers Ben, especially Muller Corner :lmfao:

    Did the SL pre or post date the repurposing of the wife? My Mrs has a theory that cars like the SL, R8, DB9 usually indicate this repurposing pattern is imminent. To be fair she has some evidence to go on given the behaviour of a few of our friends. :slap:

    As for Suzy Perry, even bigger bonus as she's also a lifelong Wolves fan, I've seen her a few times at the Mol, I'll ask her for an autograph for you next time!

    Suzy Perry's mild yam yam droning will be the least of your worries this year with the 'noise' of the new V6T engines.

    Though if what I her on the rumour mill is true Red Bull are having so much trouble with the Renault engine because they can't get Sound App from the Clio RS to work. Apparently Vettel is quite upset that the 'whines like Mark Webber after team orders' option has now been deleted altogether.

    So the cars might not sound much but at least there is plenty for you girls to get excited about in the looks department...

    How come you've been to the Molineux Ground; are you a Wolves supporter, or were you there at an away game? I didn't have you down as a football fan! :sadlike:

    The Blue one; I bet it was a bit of a wrench letting that go.

    Yes indeed, along with Eric Idle, Noddy Holder, Robert Plant and Suzi Perry I am a lifelong Wolves supporter. Whether that qualifies me as a football fan I will let others decide :laugh: I'm also friends with Stan Cullis's granddaughter so the connections are many and varied. I sit in the posh bit, known as the Billy Quiet which might be what confused you!
