PAUL Makgobe and his wife demonstrate their love of their cars as only parents of a family can.
Paul’s wife Kurhula named her wheels after their daughter, Zoey.
And he has named his wheels after his son, Jaden.
The parts manager at Phalaborwa Ford in Polokwane, Limpopo, owns a Chevrolet Lumina SS 6,0i V8.
Q: When did you buy Jaden?
A: In February.
Q: Is it your first car?
A: No, it’s my sixth but closest to my heart.
Q: Why do you love it?
A: It is classy, beautiful and very comfortable. I dreamed of driving a car like this for so long. When I was still in school, I used to look at new cars on show at dealerships and I told myself I would own a beautiful car one day.
Q: Can anyone else drive it?
A: Only people close to me can drive my car, but I must be present.
Q: How far have you driven it?
A: I went to Pretoria for a wedding with my wife. That’s the furthest drive so far.
Q: Can you tell us about its colour?
A: It’s silver but honestly, colour is not really an inspiration to me. It is more important to own the car.
Q: Is it your dream car?
A: Yes, without a doubt.
Q: How many traffic fines do you have?
A: I have a few. I was fined last week for speeding. The biggest fine I have at the moment is for R1 500.
Q: What do you think of other Mzansi drivers?
A: I respect them as drivers, but most of them want to challenge me on the road – especially the Golf 7s.
They always try but cannot take me on. My wheels are very powerful. They never beat me.
