Official Rules for Calling Shotgun

Official Rules for Calling Shotgun
Memorial Day is upon us and we Americans do what we do best. Throw epic Bar-B-Ques and hit the open road! We at Fast Lane Racing School are a bit partial to the later(although, we cant say no to a juicy steak either) and have many road trips lined up for the summer. That being said, we often have similar issues as you when going on an epic voyage, especially when traveling together. One of the biggest issues we seem to come across is who gets to ride shotgun. Its a common problem. And while calling Shotgun may seem like fun and games, but just like in the days of covered wagons, there are serious responsibilities that come with the sacred privilege of occupying this seat. So we decided to give you the Official Rules of Riding Shotgun. May the best passenger win!

James Bond." we have been treated to everything you can imagine. From American muscle to British classics, and everything in between, there are few types of cars, or vehicles in general for that matter, that James Bond hasn’t piloted. Here is a selection of some of Bond's best cars, with no decade left untouched.
 
“Do you expect me to walk?”
 
“No Mr. Bond, I expect you to drive.”
