Jo's motors

Jackie: I'm talking to Jo. Hi, Jo.

Jo: Hello

Jackie: And were talking about cars and driving. Jo, I know you can drive. When did you first have driving lessons?

Jo: The first lesson was actually on my 17th birthday because that's when you can start driving in England and I was desperate to start and so my first lesson was actually on my birthday.

Jackie: Wow. How was that?

Jo: It was great. [Jackie laughs] Absolutely loved it.

Jackie: Did you pass first time?

Jo:I did. I had 6 months of lessons and I actually passed exactly on the 6th month anniversary of starting, so 6 months later, yeah.

Jackie: Can you remember what type of car you learned to drive in?

Jo: Mmm yeah. It was a very dark navy blue Toyota Corolla and it was my mum's car.

Jackie: And then did you soon buy a car after that?

Jo: Um... not soon as I was only 17. I was about 21 when I bought my first car, yeah.

Jackie: And what kind of car was that?

Jo: It was a very small, old-fashioned Mini.

Jackie: Oh, a Mini?

Jo: Yes. It was tiny [laughs].

Jackie: Was that fun to drive?

Jo: I loved it, absolutely loved it. I mean it was so exciting getting my first en.. car anyway but really when I look back it was just so small.

Jackie: Yes, they're very popular now though.

Jo: I know, and much more substantial, yeah, lovely.

Jackie: But although they're fun to drive they don't go very fast, do they?

Jo: No, but I did have a very, very fast car a few years later and that was fabulous.

Jackie: What was that?

Jo: It was called, what was it? It was a Volvo 360GLT, it was secondhand, it had quite a few miles on the clock but wow did it go fast.

Jackie: It had a lot of power?

Jo: It had a lot of power and I really, really enjoyed driving that, especially motorway driving.

Jackie: So did you go fast? I mean the maximum speed limit is 70 miles an hour.

Jo: Yeah, well let's just say I pushed it a little bit [Jackie laughs] possibly passed the speed limit. It was fantastic though, great, great.

Jackie: And then um... did... have you had an economical car?

Jo: Yeah, um... I think in my sort of middle twenties I got a brand new Fiat Punto and that was my first new car. Absolutely brand new. And again that was a special moment because I'd never had, you know, my first new car um... and that was really nice, and that was a bit more sedate. Oh that was nice, that was quite economical, yeah.

Jackie: What car do you have at the moment, Jo?

Jo: Well, I share a car with my boyfriend, and it's a VW Polo.

Jackie: Ah, right.

Jo: And that's um... it's... it's quite fast, it's dependable, we've had it about 6 or 7 years now and its— it goes really well, yeah.

Jackie: But he tends to drive it more than you do, doesn't he?

Jo: At the moment, yes. We're um... we’re living in Portugal and I find some of the Portuguese driving a little bit scary, so I tend not to drive so much.

Jackie: Do you do some driving in it though?

Jo: Yeah a little, I mean I can and I love driving and I find my reticence um... in terms of driving to be a little bit of a surprise to myself but when I get behind the wheel I... I love it. I really love driving.

Jackie: If you could have a car of your choice, Jo, what would it be?

Jo: I would like a bright red Fiat 500.

Jackie: Ooh, they're fun, aren't they?

Jo: I know, my sister's got one in blue and it’s absolutely gorgeous but I would really like a bright red, really, really shiny one. I'd love one.

Jackie: I've always had a penchant* for a Citroen 2CV but er...

Jo: Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Jackie: ...maybe for pootling round the country lanes but that's about it.

Jo: Yeah, I know, I like, I like the Fiat 500 and I have liked them for ages actually, yeah.

Jackie: Yeah, they're great. Jo, thank you very much.

Jo: No, no problem.
