3 Car Garage with David 'HoTWire' Murphy
Well the interviewer has become the interviewee as we hand over the reins of Three Car Garage to Simon Coulson. This time, to ease things in gentle we get to delve the thoughts of David, the usual presenter for Retro Rides. With choices ranging from Japanese rarities, through to stylish grand tourers and a very practical family car we arrive at a three car garage that should let David enjoy all aspects of his car life in comfort and/or style. There is also a bunch of discussion about what wasn't picked, which feels like cheating...
