>>MOTOCHAT 1957 a Buick cost more than twice as much as a Chev, so quite luxurious. Do you restore them yourself, hands-on? My dad does most of the work because I’m not there that much. When I’m home I do bits of everything. Automatic gearboxes I don’t know much about. But manual gearboxes, engines, welding … some bodywork, but I’m not that good at finishing. Some trim work, bit of wiring … I do a bit of everything. What do you actually have in the garage in Australia? Most of my cars are Australian. The first one is a 1928 Model A Ford, an Australian original. A 1929 Hupmobile, also Australian-built. A maroon one; we hot-rodded it. It was a four-door, we made it a two-door, still fourseater. Pick-up back, it has a Jaguar independent back end and a 450 horsepower Mopar new engine and gearbox. Then I got a 1933 Ford Coupe, American, but it’s a fibreglass body. And a 1954 Ford F100 pickup, Australian but the same as the American, with the rounded ’guards. That’s my everyday car. Then the 1957 Buick. So I have five. Last good movie you saw? One that made an impression, I don’t know if was good, was ‘Bruno’. I was surprised they allow that on the big screen. I watch mainly on aircraft, and I have DVDs of the TV series 24. To be honest I am more of an outside person. I don’t sit still well. So more than books or TV I prefer to be outside, even cutting the grass or washing the car or doing something. What makes you scared? Nothing really makes me scared on the motorbike. But I’m petrified of snakes. And I live in Australia. We have some nasty ones. 21
