Just Drive It – The Sequel

jay-leno-porscheFollowing on from my post about Porsche driving, purely by coincidence, I stumbled across this great interview by Jay Leno of classic car enthusiast Yoav Gilad, recounting how he bought a 1977 Porsche 911, gave it the most basic of checkovers, then drove it from his home, right across America to Amelia Island for the big classic car auction there.

If you love the sound of the Cosworth V8 as much as the V12 Merlin, the smell of Jet A1 as much as Castrol R and admire the late Ray Hanna as much as Sir Stirling, you’ll find you’re both on the same page. Neill's love of art deco buildings means that his ideal home would be a brilliant white, 1930′s control tower in Southern France, with crisply mown grass, biplane parked on the driveway and a Ferrari 288GTO in the garage. This is something that those around him tolerate, though it does concern them from time to time.
