This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

the duchess mark 2- 2005
the duchess mk 2 was a 1.5 dci turbo diesel clio, red, totally shit.

anyway, iwas heading from manchester to blackool late one night after a gig, the motorway was dead, my wife asleep in the passenger seat.... perfect conditions to open the old lady up. i decided to see how fast this little crap box would go. apparently 106mph is achievable, the thing is light as a feather on the road, requiring my complete attention to avoid certain death, i kept this up for 30 -40 seconds as the engine bounced off the rev limiter, screaming like an E'd up banshee. i peer into my rear view and there are headlights in the distance, approaching rapidly, pulling alongside is a TVR test pilot in a black sagaris, looks at me, waves and boots it into oblivion. I flashed my lights, eased off the throttle promising myself that one day i'd have one.... one day.
