Gods own classic car?

#1
What would God drive? (1. If he/it existed, 2. If it/he was capable of operating machinery, 3. If it/he hadn't lost his licence for speeding in Wales)

I like to imagine God wafting around in a Rover P5B and then at weekends going shooting with a battered old defender.

I also have an image of a volvo p1800 sitting in a garage, with God occasionally pondering why he bought it, but unable to bring himself to part with it.

He spends his evenings browsing classfied classic car ads, waiting for his perfect E-Type to come up, but nothing is ever quite right...

Anyone got any other suggestions?

As God often appears in the Bible in a fiery chariot, dropping off or picking up odd prophets, then it is probably a Triumph Spitfire. Both of mine and my wife's caught fire on a number of occasions...

Moses of course as we know was an aficionado of British classic motorcycles, and indeed the roar of his Triumph was often heard through the land...

As Gods an Englishman, he's got an uprated MG BGT for daily use and a DB5 for the weekends. What else could he possibly want to drive?

He'd only have had a Spitfire if he didn't want to get anywhere in a hurry, ever.

Which leads me onto the last car in God's garage; a DB4 for when he's going on grotty weekends to a posh hotel with his new blonde thing

His classic garage doubtless contains a 1956 Jag XK140 Roadster. However, most of the time he drives an Aston Martin like all the other gods. Probably a DB9.

Bang on with the Rover P5B and I like your thinking about the Volvo. However, much as I am a fan of the Land Rover I think God might use something rather more quirky as a shooting brake. Perhaps an Ex WD "tilly" that is held together purely by Divine benevolence?



Here He is putting some poults out. After all, He does move in mysterious ways!

How encouraging that of the 5 posts on the thread so far (6 with this one), we all recogise that God would drive a British car/bike.

(He is of course, a Welshman).

Crabby, your errant comment about the volvo must have been whispered to you by beelzebub.

He probably has quite a collection, including an old Racing Bentley, several old jags, an MG BGT, the odd Aston Martin, and a Triumph motorbike or two.

The volvo in at 100, landy 85.... yet the american piece of sh*te Chevrolets, Cadillacs and a fecking Ford Granada are above that!

Some people have no taste.

I really don't think he'd own a triumph... and nothing German, God hates the Germans (2 world wars later)

Scweik, despite your heretical suggestion that god is a welshman(...blaaagh! After all if he made us in his image, why are we not all dark, stunted and beetle browed then?) you are on the right lines. There is only one car that God would drive...it is this...

Concur with the Brit theme.

Have to be a P5B Coupe - in black with red leather upholstery.

Mine was 'Silver Birch' (grey) with a 'Tobacco Leaf' (dogsh1t brown) hide interior.

When all my mates were buzzing around in third or fourth hand Fiestas, I could be observed growling along in my 3.5 litre monster with a grin from ear to ear.

The ladies loved it, but alas when I realised that it was costing me £50 a week to run it to and from college (c. four miles) when petrol was about threepence-ha'penny a gallon it had to go.

Replaced it with a Daimler 420G.

Swapped that for a ex-MOD series 2 Landy with a 3.5 litre Rover SD1 engine shoe-horned into it.

Then a Rover 2200TC - just like Fred Gee used to chauffer Annie Walker around in. Apart from the flames painted up the side and suspension so knackered it looked like one of those Chicano lowriders.

Any of the above would be fine transport for Him upstairs. As long as he could do that trick of water-into-4-star.

(Apologies for going off-thread, but I couldn't let the insult pass!)

But at least we are agreed on the car, Cuddles!

Bentley Blower, has to be. Pop down to Weybridge on a sunny sunday morning and listen, you'll hear it before you see it.

Funny thing is whislt I can remember the car, I can't, try as I might, remember the driver...
