Quotes

[talking about the first time he was a passenger in a Jaguar Mark II]
Quentin Willson: We climbed into this Jag and proceeded to *hammer* this car around the suburban streets of Leicester. And I remember the tyre squeal, I remember sliding across the leather seats and seeing the big gauges spinning through their arc, and thinking, and this is a clear memory, "If I'm going to die now, this is the best way, without question".
