Loving Those Old Cars

Just lately, this writer has taken an awakening interest in old cars. Not classics necessarily, although they could be; just cars from a few years ago in the days when car advertising wasn’t quite so silly and trivial. Continue reading

Introducing The Outstanding Steeda Mustang

Just when you thought that the latest Ford Mustang could not get any better, it does! There would be no point in this post otherwise. The good news is that Steeda, the world’s largest privately-owned Ford performance-based specialist, has unveiled its first turnkey (i.e. ‘Ready To Go’) V8 Mustang for the European Market. Derived from the regular 5.0 V8 model, the Q500 Enforcer, part of Steeda’s SSV range of tuned Fords, is a practical and usable sports car that offers noticeable improvements in performance, chassis design and styling over the standard Mustang.

Exciting New Bi-Turbo Touring From Alpina

In a world …of squat, bland crossovers a big tourer stands out like a sleek athlete in a burger bar. It certainly seems clear to me that my preference and fondness for big, fast estate cars shows no sign of abating. Good. Let’s hope it stays that way and that Alpina continue doing their good works for the benefit of motoring mankind. Continue reading

The Railway Network Eats Itself

Despite being a car driver first and foremost, I would from time to time like to use our railway network. The idea that I could travel a long distance, arrive refreshed and hire at car at the destination appeals to me, especially with our rotten, crowded roads. Sadly, there are too many reasons why I don’t. I’ll take the car every time. Continue reading

Sporting Bodies Diminish The Sports They Represent

Especially with the outstanding coverage we get on the TV, a huge variety of sports are these days available to the public either to watch or to participate in. Sports are good. They promote health; we should all get involved one way or another. Continue reading

Wet Weather Driving: How To Stay Safe

With the wet weather months on the way, it’s the time of year where driving can become just a little more hazardous. Rain and wind reduces visibility and decreases the amount of grip your car has on the road, so you need to be extra careful. Continue reading

Clean Air Zones: what are they and where will they be?

In October this year, Oxford announced its plans to become the world’s first zero emissions city zone – they aim to ban all petrol and diesel cars from the city centre area by 2020. This suggests the UK are serious about rolling out their plans to ban the sale of all new diesel and petrol cars by 2040 in an attempt to clean up the UK’s air quality. Oxford isn’t the only city looking to introduce clean air zones either. The government has revealed five UK cities that plan to have a clean air zone by 2020, including Birmingham, Southampton and Leeds. Continue reading

Are You as Confident As You Think You Are On The Road?

Without confidence, you’re a danger on the road and you may end up injuring yourself or those around you.

The McLaren 570S Spider: The Last Supercar

I should qualify that. The McLaren 570S Spider as featured here is the last supercar I think I will ever drive. ‘Are you mad?’ I hear you ask; well, maybe, depends on who you ask, but that has nothing to do with why I am done with the supercar sector.

You see, it was like this…. Continue reading

No one likes seeing an accident on the side of the road or seeing there’s been an accident on the news, it’s important that you think before you start driving this winter. Continue reading
