That would be fun , set up a road block and have the whole line of cars to be checked as Vaux*&^%$ haha

 

It could be like a FordOwners day out and we could set up Stalls and Stocks for the V-Drivers.

I enjoy trying to write novels for a hobby, mainly Sci-Fi, but sometimes also thrillers or action or World War II based stories, so sometimes when driving, a sudden inspiration would come up, an idea would form in my mind, I'm suddenly thinking of a scene, thinking about what this or that character would do, how this or that action would unfold. I would end up thinking, how would this starship move around during a space battle, how would the pilot react, or what would some villain be like when he's shouting or raving.

And I would find myself actually gripping the steering wheel a bit hard, thumbs pressing and fingers pulling, acting like I'm this space pilot, that I would act out how the charact would react, or that I would be mouthing what a character would be shouting. My heart would beat a little faster, and in rare cases, sometimes i get so excited to a point where sometimes my foot press down on the gas pedal and i pile on 5 more mph.

It only happens just for around a few seconds, on open out of town roads, not much traffic anywhere, before I calm down and telling myself: "Okay! Okay! Just put it in the back of my head, first chance I get, when I get to stop, jot a quick note about it, but for now, think about driving!"

Good thing I don't change gears when those ideas comes up otherwise I would jerk the gear stick as if it was a fighter plane's joystick!!

Now I get the Major Eazy reference.

Used to love his stories as a kid.

Major Eazy and Tewfik kicking butt.

The artist Carlos Ezquerra used to do many of the main characters in 2000AD too (in the days before computers came into play).

Many good memories of sitting in my Uncles Barber Shop reading the comics and those little Commando magazines you used to be able to get. 

Happy days.
