And who'd buy one at auction?

The Marion Bobcat Speedster intrigues me: and the estimate is low

I'd bid on the 1953 Jaguar XK120 Cabriolet

I should have held onto my Riley One-Point-Five, the Sunbeam Rapier, even

And I'd drive us through the Alps. To Briançon or Grenoble?

Truthfully, I had to look the Riley One-Point-Five up, but THAT is the EXACT car I was looking at to buy...and now that I may need to drive again in the UK ....

I WANT THAT ONE, in mint green. although most have leeking issues, so I still don't know.

it only costs around 400£ to insure.

You'd like the piped leather seats, Wilton carpet, burr-walnut dash, etc. But somehow, you'd enjoy it more in skirt or dress. Lots of meters, switches too

I've always wanted a 66 Studebaker Avanti.

This is the car we didn't get. But shall I get one yet?

well the old man says no.

I can't have a Riley One-Point-Five. He said it's too old.

In politics, is he?

those are the kind of cars where your driving down this nice country road just moving along nice, then all of a sudden you come up on this long line of cars going like 10 miles an hour and there's some old man driving one of these cars in the front ruining everyones day......

Cue Patricia!

You are cute

And a long line of vehicles is a queue, if one can take the trouble to spell it; but it isn't, despite the common ignorant usage, a convoy, because that is a naval formation, which, on the roads, would be a column. Good morning, Miss

I agree with Miss Italy. I think the Jaguar would be a nice car to drive and would be able to get around the convoy in a hurry :)

What about my Bobcat Speedster?

well, those are pretty skinny tires on that car, so.....

 

The Bently, the first car, now that one looks fast :)

Plus it's got a back seat. trish always likes back seats, lol.

That Bentley is certainly the best car in the auction. Now what if we could borrow it? Would you have me dressed as your chauffeur, Lady Tricia?

Are you a good driver Mr. Petsbody?

Let's put it this way. My reactions are quick. And some people whom I've driven have complimented me without any prompting that I'd make a good taxi-driver. And I enjoy driving – on ice, through snow, in the night. And you?

Well, we have winter here and I've never had an accident, not a serious one anyways. I've gotten pulled over a lot but never got an actual speeding ticket either except once, but I think that cop might of been gay anyways so......
