Munster’s Tommy O’Donnell with his new Ford Kuga.



What are you currently driving?

161 Ford Kuga Titanium.

Love at first sight, or just a means to get from A to B?

I suppose it was a bit of love at first sight. I loved them back in 2009 when they first launched but as a college student at the time it was out of my budget. Delighted to have been able to drive one and it was worth the wait.

Petrol head or Sunday driver?

Motors & Me: Munster’s Tommy O’Donnell

Sunday driver, I love looking at the scenery and pointing out wildlife to whatever passengers might be in the car.

What was your first car?

A bottle green 1997 Toyota Starlet, it was all mine and I loved it. I passed it on to my brothers before I eventually traded it in for scrappage. It didn’t owe us anything by the time we left it go.

What else do/did you own?

Loads including two WV Golfs, Toyota Auris, and Avensis.

Dream drive in dream location?

Motors & Me: Munster’s Tommy O’Donnell

A couple of years ago I drove a yellow, convertable Chevrolet Camero Convertible (like Bumblebee from Transformers) on the Pacific Coast highway in California that was pretty special.

Passenger you’d most like on a long journey?

Comedian, Dara O’Brian. Incredibly funny but he would also have some very intellectual conversation for the long trip.

Passenger you’d least like?

Any of the Kardashian clan.

What’s on your playlist?

Everything I hit the shuffle button and see what my mood decides.
