Meet in the sandwich
Wheels Magazine. February 2018
When Cameron Kirby bought Wheels’ Kia Picanto to our Treasure Hunt Drive in November 2017 we enjoyed every minute of the friendly banter and car swap opportunities.

“In a scene from the original Fast & Furious movie the character Jesse says “there is something about engines that calms me down”. Although this was only a movie, I have heard similar statements made in real life as well.
Like one in five Australian’s, I’ve suffered from a mental illness. Anxiety was something I lived with on a daily basis in my 20’s, but thankfully now it only occasionally rears its ugly head. Cars are one of the things that helped me through this over the years.
For me, driving my car or even just sitting in my car has a calming effect when I’m feeling down or tense. My children know when I’m getting overwhelmed, when I say ‘Mum’s going to sit in the car’. Of course I can’t leave the house, but those five minutes or so of silence sitting in the car, smelling it, touching it, are enough to help me carry on with my day.
Of course when I go for a long drive, either with the children or by myself, I feel a release like a weight being lifted off my shoulders. I know I’m not the only person who feels like this about cars.”
