JOE’S CAR CV

Not an Italian in sight – British and American metal dominate Joe’s back-catalogue


FORD PINTO

‘Canada 1978, we had no money and this was all we could afford. Only four years old, but passengers in the back could amuse themselves watching the road go by – through the floor! Terrible.’

MINI 1000

‘Back on The Isle of Wight for three years and we went everywhere in our little blue Mini. We loved it.’

FORD MUSTANG

‘I’d always lusted after a Mustang and having returned to Canada, I had to have one. It looked fabulous, even in baby-poo beige, but it was a dreadful car – unreliable, underpowered and with awful handling.’

CHEVROLET CAMARO

‘This generation of Camaro is one of the prettiest cars ever made. We bought it new and although it was far from perfect, we loved it. It took us through the Rockies a couple of times and even down to San Diego and back – happy days.’

ASTON MARTIN V8 VANTAGE X-PACK

‘My first classic, and still in my garage after 13 years. Having endured some really bland (but ferociously expensive) company cars, I needed something completely different. I was thinking about a Ferrari but saw an ad for the X-Pack and fell in love. It can be a sod to start sometimes and it drinks fuel, but it’s taken us on many long tours and has never broken down, touch woodgrain.’

ASTON MARTIN DB7 VANTAGE VOLANTE

‘Bought sight unseen while in Singapore as a retirement present. Ideal for the Isle of Wight, unlike the X-Pack. Comfortable, quick and stylish.
