Rob Dickinson: the Singer boss’s life in cars

I passed my test in the early Eighties in my dad’s 1971 Opel Ascona estate – bronze metallic with cream vinyl interior. Great car, rear-wheel drive, brilliant on wet roundabouts, and I could get my drum kit in the back of it. The first car I bought was a beige Ford Fiesta. My favourite car during the band years was a Peugeot 106 XSi.
