Roller derby player Amy Rankin, aka I-Scream, likes a car that is small and nippy but harbours a secret sparkly purple past.

MY CAR


I have a Subaru Impreza RS Hatch. This was my first new car. I got it pimped out with extras too - the flashy leather seats, annoyingly bright lights and an entertainment system that does pretty much everything but make my morning tea.

Being from England I'm a fan of the small and nippy style car, and you can still fit most of Ikea in the Subaru as well.

MY DREAM CAR


I'd love the WRX version of my car, but after taking it for a test drive I decided it was best for the other users of the road if I didn't have one.

MY FIRST CAR


A 1997 Golf GTi in sparkly purple. I won a big sub-woofer that took up the whole boot and the car would shake at the traffic lights, but all you could hear was the bass because the normal speakers were so rubbish.

Maybe that shaking was why it broke down all the time. It took me a while to realise that I should stop pumping all my cash into trying to mend it.

TOP DRIVING DESTINATION


I've just been to Hawaii and they have some crazy winding roads with epic views.

It reminded me of driving around country lanes in England - except these ones didn't have hedges with hidden walls in them, just deadly cliffs and overhangs.

MY REVHEAD RATING (1-5)


Two. I like to drive hard and pretend I know what I'm talking about but when she breaks down, I'll be on the side of the road smiling nicely to the cars as they go by in the hope someone will stop and help me.

I-Scream will play in WA Roller Derby's next clash on June 23 at Kingsway Indoor Sports Centre. Tickets at trybooking.com/BHNI.
