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.

It started well...
... but ended up with me looking a total knob.
The day before I married my amazing wife she surprised, nay flabergasted, me with an Aston Martin V8 Vantage. It was to be mine for the whole weekend. Words could not express how extatic I was. Needless to say the wedding went out of my head immediately, I had an Aston to play with!

The loving wife had also arranged that I had nothing to do all day on the Friday. Off I went, not giving a care to the scornful looks of those in the village as I roared through the village (ooh the sound!). And so it was for the whole day until a spirited drive up the Rugely bypass with a mate. POOF! and we are surrounded by smoke. Ballsocks! There is no way to describe the thought that you have just killed an 80 grand car.

Trundling to a stop outside a school (at home time no doubt), with a bus and lord knows how many cars stuck behind me. I felt like the worlds biggest plank, but still grinning ear-to-ear because I was in an Aston!

Will cut it there as it does go further, with discussions with the rental company etc. It did end "happily" of a fashion. The guy ended up grovelling to me think he had messed up the whole wedding!

I think
Extatic could probably convey how ecstatic you were. ;-)

Many Thanks for the correction :) Had to do something to show the "newbie-ness" of the post. Bugger!
