Mr Wood retired in March 2003, and brought his first brand new car, a Toyota Celica T Sport. He loved this car and some five years later hoped Toyota would have produced its successor - but to no avail. On the 10th July 2012 Adam Mcdougall, offered Mr Wood a test drive in the new GT86, Mr Wood quoted "As soon as I sat in the driving seat I knew I was in for an exciting drive and was not disappointed". Within a fortnight for the test drive Mr Wood ordered one and took delivery of it on the 1st September 2012. The excitement of the test drive still lingers and he is looking forward to many years of exciting driving.
