Ah, nothing like a touching interview with someone who is head over heels in love.
Last week on the British ITV morning show This Morning, hosts Amanda Holden and Phillip Schofield talked to 63 year old smokeshow Edward Smith, who has taken 700 lovers since the age of 14. Did I say lovers? I meant cars. I meant various different makes and models of cars. And a helicopter one time, during a spontaneous airport threesome.
In the full interview, Mr Ed talks about his attraction, and how a cheeky wee VW called Vanilla (now the love of his life) stole his heart 32 years ago:
“I first met her before I got her…the local Jehovah Witness church drive around in a white Beetle handing out literature. I already had a ’69 [lol] Volkswagen named Victoria but, there was something about that white ’74 Beetle…while they were talking I couldn’t keep my eyes off her”
Former Britain’s Got Talent host Amanda Holden kept it together, but was undoubtedly looking to shield her last name from this car-ma sutra enthusiast. And we have to give a kia-ora to broadcasting’s finest Phil Schofield, who moved to our shores at the age of 19 and hosted Shazam! in the ’80s:
If only that bespectacled, pink t-shirt wearing dork knew back then that his career was stuck on a 30 year highway to this iconic car sex interview. Of course, he had to go back to the UK to get it – you’d never find any of that nonsense here…
