When not reviewing the latest model cars for CarTell.tv Amelia is an award-winning Cabaret Artist and Writer. A Musical Theatre Actress by trade, she quickly swapped ‘Song and Dance’ for ‘Comedy and Cabaret’, when she realised her ability to do a time-step (or ANY step) paled in comparison to her knack for cracking quips. She featured in Australia’s major cabaret festivals and has been invited to take the shows the United States and England.
My First Car
My first car was a 1992 brown Mazda 626 (oh so glamorous), with the number plate WAM-297. It was in mint condition when I bought it, but after a few years with me, the number plate WAM took on a whole new meaning. Since then my driving has improved and so has my taste, in cars.
What car did you go on your first date in?
I wish I could remember! But I do recall a rather impressive Porsche convertible several years later. That’s about as impressive as it got though… … …
What do you drive now?
I had a Citroen c5, diesel, but had to leave it in NSW due to a rather unfortunate incident involving a wombat. It was great for fuel consumption, had a gorgeous interior, great features, and super comfortable to drive. Didn’t fare so well against the wombat though.
Your dream car?
I’m a sucker for an SUV. Love the Audi’s Q5 or Q7. They’re my practical picks. Something on the less impractical side, however, would be a Red Cadillac convertible.
