Cool Lennox Lewis

The dealership I work at in Canada often has Lennox Lewis's car in for service.

His mother still lives in the area and I went to school with him in Cameron Heights.

More then that we sponsered him to the olympics and he brought in his gold medal. I will dig up the picture.

In case you are wondering, he drives a totally customised 1997 S500 Coupe with a lot of ground effects and a whole trunk load of stereo.

:p Funny part is he has an S600 logo on the back.


Here is a funny story....

He was kind of a bully in school and I mostly ignored him.
He was a very good student and had great language skills.

One day he came into the dealership and said in a Jamaican accent. Hey man my A/C no work....
I offered to take him on a test drive and asked him how he got his British/Jamaican accent when he grew up in Kitchener. He responded and said he always had it.
Then he said, see man A/C no work.
I hit the EC button and repeated in my best Jamaican accent...
See man A/C works

BTW, i guess in his last fight he showed that a bigger bully can always beat up a smaller bully...

Back Again

Just for your information:

We are currently in negotiations to sell Lennox a new CL55.

He is very very tight with his money, and it has not been an easy task.

Will keep you informed as to whether he buys it or not.

Relief

Luckily he has a very good sense of humour.

No he did not hit me, but my god you should see the size of his fists.
