Meet the Team: Dean


How long have you been working at John Delany Motors?
10 years, I was 16 when I started.

Quickly sum up a day in the life of a Vehicle Technician…
Cuts & Bruises and a bumpy head, I bang it a lot.

What would you be doing if you didn’t work at John Delany Motors?
Probably a plumber or a builder.

Describe your dream holiday?
I’d like to go to America.

Favourite food?
Chinese- sweet and sour chicken.

First car?
I had an Escort van when I was 15, but on the road a Polo.

Talk us through your perfect Sunday…
Lie in, wash my car and just chill for the day or tinker in the shed.

Describe yourself in 3 words…
Easy-going and Friendly. I can’t think of a third.

What’s your go-to karaoke song?
I don’t do karaoke, at all. It’d be something old though.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Invisibility- it’s just cool.

If you were stuck on a desert island what three things would you bring?
A Chinese restaurant, a kebab house and an Indian takeaway.

What would people never guess you do in your role?
Some of my friends are still amazed that I get my own jobs, that I have the responsibility and I’m allowed to do a job on my own. They’ve clearly got  a lot of faith in me!

What’s the one TV show you never miss?
I like Soaps, probably Eastenders. I’ve started watching Prison Break, if there’s a series on every week I’ll watch that.

Your favourite band?
I don’t have a favourite but I like older rap music like older Eminem stuff. I like all sorts of music- 80s as well as new stuff.

What’s your chosen midnight snack?
Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations Crisps

Who is the coolest celebrity you’ve ever met?
Ricky Tomlinson, the dad from the Royal Family- he was at a park opening it and signed something for me “Ricky Tomlinson, My arse”.

What’s your dream car?
There isn’t one car, there’d be a few. Either a Rolls Royce, a big Bentley or a Porsche. If I could afford my dream car I’d have 20 other ones as well.
