    Grandfather drives 1,000,000 miles in 20 Porsches (without a fine)

    Here's a nice story: my wife found it during her browsing of the Daily Mail website.  (For the record, I don't read the Daily Mail!).  I can't help feeling that he might have been driving a little TOO carefully though!.

    Great story, thanks for posting. Better than the usual rubbish printed in the Daily Mail, - IMO this rag is Gutter Press at it's worst. Smiley

    This guy is ME in 33 years!

    I am well on my way - 8 Porsches (7 911s) since age 15, now 49 and 600K + miles (wish I would have kept track better) and counting.  No ticketes my lawyer has not been able to get me off on!  Never. 

    Cheers!

    I think it's a lovely story ... a guy who has a genuine passion for the marque ... bravo to him :)

    I went for some shopping to Harrods (in Knightsbridge) yesterday ... same old story ... rich poseurs driving their exotic sportscars at 2 mph making as much revving noise in 1st gear as possible ... really sad and pathetic IMO.

    IMO one guy like that is worth 1000 show-offs like them.
