    Sometimes it is easy to forget that people who are aficionados of cars may not have always been into the same cars as you. Our photographer highlights the case in point from time to time and this was how one of these many conversations went. “I’ve met a guy who has a Riley Brooklands replica […]

    I’ve travelled a fair bit around this planet we all live on and there are a few things that I really like. The Grand Canyon for example is, as holes in the ground go, massive. I’d seen pictures of it before I laid my eyes on it so I figured I’d recognise it when I […]

    Talk to people about rallying and many people will discuss crashes. Some of the most spectacular barrel rolls and automotive collisions with the landscape have happened in rallying. As long as no one is injured, the spectators will gladly run to the car, check the occupants are in one piece and then take great delight […]

    Gold has always been revered as a previous metal. When I first started working, if you had a Gold card in your wallet you were loaded. You had to be. They didn’t give you one unless you were earning a squizillion pounds, had a place in the city, owned most of the country and drove […]

    I was woken this morning by the alarm on my iPhone. My current alarm of choice is Cissy Strut by The Meters. Starting with a male voice singing “aaaaaaaaaaah yuh” and then dropping in to a blues based guitar strum with a hip hop rhythm of drums, it’s a perfect way for me to wake […]

    Back in 1999, a couple of friends of mine went to Australia. Her father was out there working and as she hadn’t seen him for a few months, had taken a trip out to see him. Upon her return to the wet, dreary, grey sky-laden Midlands, she made the decision.  It was now or never […]

    Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. Or is it beer holder? Same difference most likely. Jumping straight in, I’ll say that pretty much everything that can be discussed or said about the E-Type Jaguar has been said. Many times. But not by us. So, what you see before you is the […]

    When you think of the British countryside, it conjures up images of rolling green fields, lazy sunny days, kids running around with kites, ramblers ambling past livestock chewing the cud, picnics under trees; all these things have been shown many times in many ways to promote the countryside as a welcoming place. If like me […]

    After 67 years of faithful service, Land Rover have announced that production of the Defender as we know it, is to end. Despite first appearing in the form of the Series 1 in 1948, the basic recipe has changed very little during it’s life. This is a motorcar which has enabled us to reach previously […]

    If there is one period in time that I could go to for a while using time travel, it would be the sixties. This is because when you talk to people about it, it had everything you needed in life. Optimism, drugs, free love, a vibrant music scene and it seemingly belonged to the young. […]
