Chef Melissa Palinkas is the driving force behind Young George in East Fremantle, which is slowly welcoming back diners to its famous cellar space.
What are you driving and why did you buy it?
I am driving a Mitsubishi ASX. It was a panic buy after my favourite Ford Escape was written off in an accident (not my fault) and I needed a car immediately.
What’s your dream car?
I always wanted a Blackhawk Jeep, but as we are a one-car family, my wife won’t allow me. Our next car, which we are looking at now, is the Volkswagen Touareg.
What was your first car?
My first car was a Mitsubishi Lancer coupe. It was silver and I got it for my 21st birthday from my parents. Man, I loved that car.
What annoys you most about other motorists?
People who like to sideline in a free lane so they can get ahead of a jam and across into the lane they need to be in while staying in front of everyone else. It’s dangerous and disrespectful to other drivers.
What’s your favourite driving music?
My favourite driving music is funk, 90s house and 80s retro hip-hop that I sing along to. I still listen to CDs. I have my friend Milly’s DJ-mix CD in at the moment.
