Painful Car Service

My daughter died in a car crash when she was eighteen. She had got her P’s just weeks before and was driving at night to pick up her friends for a party. She was the only friend to have her license and had agreed to be the designated driver. This was before there were passenger …

Car swap show

I’m part of a car enthusiast group that meets once a month. I enjoy it because it’s nice to meet up with like-minded people and check out each other’s cars. Leading up to the event we will all find a location that will easily accommodate all the cars and is convenient for everyone to get …

Car Bet

I lost a bet with my friends. I bet that none of them would be able to go without a beer when we were out on Saturday night. My friends are beer fiends and smash about fifteen beers per session, whereas I smash about eight. I’m without a doubt the tamest in my group of …

Agatha’s No More

OH. MY. Oh my! I’m probably still a little shell-shocked from the TV show ‘Week of Our Lives’ New year special episode, which promised to shape the future of the series…forever. And wow, it sure did! For one thing, it’s the first crossover episode between ‘WOOL’ and ‘Sails of Our Lives’, with the boats coming …

Daredevil Driver

Okay, I’m starting to get a bit worried. The show starts in less than an hour, and my car really isn’t sounding great. You see, I’m a stunt driver. A famous one, actually. Perhaps you’ve heard of me: Darus ‘Courage’ Johnson. That’s right, I’m the Courage Johnson that your parents used to tell you about. …

Toowoomba, Innovation Station

As a local, I find this cafe…adequate. You see, Toowoomba is the centre of many great things; a hidden gem of Queensland. Did you know, for example, that coffee was invented in Toowoomba? Most people don’t believe me, but it is…a fact that I often repeat. Yes, a scientist accidentally crushed a coffee bean, thought it …

Heavy Delivery

That was the hardest delivery I’ve ever done. Over the years, there have definitely been some strange ones, but none so heavy as a literal tonne of gravel. It didn’t help that I picked today to get car repair, either. My business involves making deliveries for people, no questions asked. A truckload of puppies? Sure …

Multi-Lane Menace

It’s come to my attention that the autobahn concept is pretty divisive. From my perspective, it’s completely terrifying. The notion of having no speed limit to regulate the flow a multi-lane freeway freaks me out. I understand that most drivers in Germany are used to it, and that it’s something of a point of national …

Cars: Number 1?

If I had to rank my vehicle preferences, number one would be helicopters. Obviously. They’re the most efficient way to travel, they can go in a straight line, you don’t have to sit through an in-flight safety video with air stewards telling you that you need to out your seat forward and some of them …
