When asked why the Porsche 928 is alright by him, renowned motoring journalist Jeremy Clarkson of the BBC Two program Top Gear shared a very personal and poignant story about his dying father by way of explanation.
Back in 1994, I was living in London and I got a call one evening from my mum to say that my dad was desperately ill in the hospital in Sheffield and I needed to get there as quickly as possible. I’d just taken the chicken out of the oven. I thought well I’ll take that to my mom because won’t have eaten. I ran outside and I had a 928 on test that week. And when I arrived in Sheffield the chicken was still warm and my dad was still alive.
