The Crank: Imthishan Giado
Quite possibly the oldest young man in the Gulf, Imthishan’s a true product of the local motoring scene, having spent most of the last three decades meticulously (some would say pedantically) cataloging and observing the growth of petrolhead fever. A serial car buyer, car gazer and classic car hunter, he brings just the right amount of (medically-approved) neurosis to the team, as well as a wit dryer than the sump of a Metzger-engined 911.
We started the show, as we do, with a tour around what the boys have been doing over the last week and we try to stick to cars.
I suggest you take a little trip over to Facebook, WOW, is all I can say.
Icelandic stream crossing, a Morgan 3 wheeler and more!
Back to the show we had a nice evening of messages and we caught up on what we missed from last week.
Imtishan: you prefer the V8 Mustang over the 2016 NSX justify that! And what is your view on ME region being an outcast for many great vehicles.
Same 3 wheeler as in peter seller's film 'the party'?
Just bought a Skoda Octavia and am so impressed. After lots of research can say you can't get this much bang for your buck anywhere. Loving it :) and the show btw Joel

Thanks. My question was a loaded one. I bought the new landcruiser 70, 30th anniversary edition. 4 door version but haven't seen any others. Love it! Lot of car for the money I think (140k). Cheers, Scott

Hi James, I drive a Honda Accord and has clocked 160,000km as I am in Sales and marketing. Would like to sell it off and go for the next model . Is it possible to get a bank loan if my visa in my new job is barely one month old. Been in use for 15 years and have a clean bank record. Thanks!
