There's perhaps no item more symbolic of an owner's personality than the car they drive. Creative types seem pretty keen on interesting cars. So every few weeks we ask someone in the biz to tell us about their steed.

Every few weeks we’ll be asking someone in the biz to tell us about their steed and first up is TBWA\’s chief creative officer Toby Talbot and his Volvo P1800.
