Here goes - in no particular order - any to add to up 101?

 

1. Take the most shite car you can to the poshest motoring event - extra points if you get in the collectors parking spot not just the punters car park. 2002 XType to the Jaguar Drives Club Concours...etc.

 

2. Get your car featured in a print magazine as a 'barn find' or discovered 'classic'- park it in a field of shed and get the camera out...

 

3. Celebrate your cars birthday by giving it a name and baking it a cake - post photos on social media with suitable pictures.

 

4. Drive the most unlikely car you can to the Nurburgring  and make a lap whilst a mate films you for YouTube. If the 'ring is too far try the M25.

 

5. Get your car photographed to be featured in the 2020 Autoshite calender.

 

6. Call out the AA or equivalent more than five times in a year (or alternatively get them to withdraw service).

 

7. Break down and cause such a tailback it gets on a local radio traffic bulletin (avoid national bulletins as you may be dead).

 

8. Borrow a mates socket set and fail to return it for a whole year whist promising you will return it tomorrow.

 

9. Attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed in pink trousers and cravat.

 

10. Race your car against a train - forget Bentley Boy Woolf Barnato and Le Train Bleu - drop your family at any station and try to get to their destination before them (but smugly and in peace and quiet).

 

11. Buy the most expensive car you can for the least money - £500 XJ6 or £2000 Bentley etc.

 

12. Find the most 'retro' spot you can to photograph your car in an age appropriate location and post online.

 

13. Take your car back to the original dealer who sold it and embarrass the sales staff (if garage not demolished - if changed marque still take it back - a Marina at a Maserati dealer etc.

 

14. Own the biggest American car you can find.

 

15. Buy a car that your friends and family refuse to travel in.

 

16. Attend an Autoshite event.

 

17. Go green-laning in an unlikely vehicle - extra points if you then break down in a local dogging spot.

 

19. Take your car back home to where it was manufactured. If it's British it may now be a housing estate. Japanese cars may require determination.

 

20. Mistake a real AC Cobra for a replica (in front of its owner)

 

Etc...over to you....

Found myself looking at Volvos on Autotrader, over Christmas. WTF is wrong with me?

Jesus wept! So much for reliability. Was there a thread on this?

36. Extra points if you completely upstage the other owner - Noble or Ferrari Testarossa ten a penny - but everybody will be looking at and talking about your Marina 1800 TC Coupe or Citroen AXGT etc.

 

Done that one, in Cyprus.  Lined up with Jags, Rolls Royces, Morgans... but everyone wanted to talk about my 1971 Capri. :)
