Name: Shane Carey
Car: 2001 Volkswagen Beetle 1.6
Shane works at Cavanaugh’s petrol station in Greencastle. His VW Beetle is meticulously maintained and there is even a replica baby VW on the dashboard.
How long have you had the car?
Any plans to change?
Not at the moment. Although saying that I have a four month old child so things might have to change as the car is only a two door.
Is it reliable?
Best thing about the car?
The colour. I like the black and think that the brightly coloured beetles are a bit over the top.
How often do you wash it?
Nearly every day! I don’t like the car being dirty and I make good use of the fact that I have access to a pressure washer.
If you were the minister for finance what would you do to help motorists?
The cities have bus lanes and cycle paths. In rural areas I think we should have tractor lanes to keep the traffic moving.
What would you really like to be driving around in?
A Porsche 911. The VW beetle is said to be the poor man’s porsche, so I’m half way there!
