I would like to disagree with your first paragraph thingy.. My post was posted "Yesterday 11:39 AM" while this was posted "Yesterday, 12:39 PM".See http://forums.finalgear.com/top-gear/the-weekly-telegraph-column-by-james-thread-36214/page-14/
As usual Linden Chase has beaten you (and everyone else) to it
And James lives about 15 miles from that dealership, not Chris Evans. Yes I am a good detective and no I'm not actively stalking James!
And from here:I made him feel quite bad about this, so to make up for his mistake he took me to his local Ferrari dealership for a frothy coffee from a really posh machine with Italian writing all over it.
Of course it is very much possible that all Ferrari dealerships have posh coffee machines but to me it seems like James meant the very dealership he visited with Evans, and it was Evans' local dealership. It is of course very much possible that James lives close to that dealership (and looking at maps, he does).I walked into the dealership with the posh coffee machine and, still under the influence of the broadcasting personality, left with a four-year-old F430 coup? I couldn't afford.
clarkson has an SL Black, certain of that as well as a Mercedes 600, Hammond has a Porsche 9/11 in like a smokey grey along with a Morgan Aeromax, others as well, and james may's got a Rolls Royce Corniche, an old 9/11 a fiat panda i'm assuming others as well lol
So far, currently (after going through the thread; I'm not counting cars owned by spouses)...Has somebody got a complete list?
Nope, he has a Ford Focus that he's talked about in a couple of columns, but it may have been for his Mother-in-Law who I think lives with them.You mean the Fiesta he bought for ?50 for his youngest daughter back in the summer? I didn't count that one, either.
Richard also has a Range Rover, and a 1976 (I think that's the year) Vauxhall Firenza.So far, currently (after going through the thread; I'm not counting cars owned by spouses)...
