“The most important part of vehicle maintenance is clean windows, so if you are broken down, you will enjoy the beauty of the view.” (Dan Eldon)
Remember I told you the other day that my beloved Tembomoja (a.k.a. ’89 VW Golf II) is soon retiring to West Africa and that I am still undecided upon Tembombili?
Well, with christmas round the corner, it’s about time for me to show you how materialistic I really am and what kind of (old) cars it takes to turn me on. Yes, they turn me on, they are hot like Lake Magadi, juicy like Nyama Choma with Tusker and stylish like James Kikuyumoja 007 :-)
So, before my brain starts coming back, please allow me to present a short list of cars that I would like to drive one day:
ROVER P5B (this particular one owned by the Queen, btw)
ASTON MARTIN DB5
FORD MUSTANG (Fastback)
PEUGEOT 504 Coupé V6
VOLVO 262 C Coupé Bertone
Audi Coupé 100S
(in dark grey or dark green with a light brown leather interior).
Ferrari 250 GTE 2+2
The irony is that after publishing this post in 2005, I later on sold the 1989 VW Golf 2 and stayed without a car until 2015. I then inherited a rusty 1993 BMW E34 which I kept for another year until it was replaced in 2016 by a 2007 VW Touran 2.0 DSG Highline – also with a lot of chrome like the vintage cars above.
Also, I am not a huge Ferrari fan, but that 250 GTE 2+2 ex 1963 is just too sweet. If I had all the money in the world to buy any car I would want, I would probably still go for the VW Touran (but the European version) as it is my dream car. Practical and economical, even fits a fridge or a bed.
