Cool Luckiest man alive? Well, close to it atleast!

While we all consider being a test driver for an exotic car company as the best job in the world, if you think about it some more, being a renowned auto journalist is even better!

In this dream job, you get to drive ALL the supercars, get treated like royalty by the auto companies, get invited to the South of France for car launches and get to live out your wildest auto fantasies.

I think one Mr. Jeremy Clarkson has summed it up quite well in his column for this months Top Gear. Just gets me green with envy when I think about it.

Well, it seems like every time a new girl signs up and introduces herself, there are 1,450 members who pounce on her. End result is that they rarely get back online!

Moral of the story: be a bit less active! lol

jk!

actually there lots of lucky men on the planet..
all successful race car drivers for instance.. loving what u do.. and gettting paid big bucks for it

most sportsmen for that matter..
i think sport is a wonderful way to earn ure living.. take golf for instance.. u can carry on playing as long as u can walk !

To quote the great JC

"...I've driven quite a few cars in my time. Well, to be perfectly honest, I've driven EVERY car in my time."
