Driving a porsche: the problems

Problem 1: I am so busy being cool I forget to change gear.

Problem 2: My legs are too short to reach the pedals so I have to have the seat very close to the steering wheel, which means my head gets in the way of the sun visor coming down. A screwed-up face peering into the sunshine doesn't raise coolness factor.

Problem 3: Because it's an old car Dire Straits is on the cassette player. Playing air guitar to Brothers in Arms while at traffic lights severely diminishes coolness factor.

What I need is a little Aretha R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

It's pretty hard to be cool when you're driving a 14-year-old Renault Clio, as I do. But at least I don't have a pair of furry dice hanging from the rear-view mirror. That would be seriously UNcool.

Furry dice are now retro and cool, nick, didn't you know?
