The quote applied to the real world I think!

In that case this place needs to lighten up a bit.

Golfing pensioners who aspire to be James Bond?

I mean you do sometimes see Aston Martins with 007-style reg plates!

Nobody is looking at the person behind the wheel, so no they don't.
That's a big claim
How big was your sample poll ?
You think that people are looking at you when you are in your car? You think they care who is behind the wheel?
You failed to answer the question hehe

And you might be surprised at other people's experiences while behind the wheel wink

Ha ha that's funny that you think people care about who's driving (apart from maybe a few who want to see if the person looks like a fat old golfer).

You're confusing "care" with "notice" hehe

Last time Chris Evans and myself drove past each other in town we gave each other a smile and a wave.

But I wouldn't class him as fat.

Last night, I saw a middle aged man walking with his young son (must have been about 6 - for argument's sake, I'm going to say he was exactly 6, in fact, it was his birthday yesterday!).

They both looked at my car as I drove past.

So is it a sports car or supercar?

biggrin

Ah. Maybe it's a hypercar.

Its a fair comment about the Aston though. In the same way that R8 owners are defensively myopic over their super/sports cars, Aston owners are desperate to let you know they absolutely don't want to be Bond. At all. Not even a little bit.Just no, OK...dont even ask them!
