If Cars Were Chillies

DriveWrite is unwell. Even as I type this I am on the sick couch and feeling poorly. I have A COLD and cars are the last thing on my mind. My wife has offered to bring me hot beverages, paracetamol, even my testicles (if she can find them, she says) and if I feel that bad I should try childbirth etc, etc. You know how it goes. Sympathy? It ain’t in the lexicon. Continue reading

Alfa Romeo Giulia: Classic Name Back In The Game

It may not have escaped your notice that DriveWrite has previously owned not one but two Alfa Romeo cars. Previously on these pages you will have read about them. In both cases they were fabulous to behold and glorious to drive but sadly, badly, flawed. I won’t labour the point because the evidence of universal ownership issues is widely known. Now there’s the new compact executive, the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Continue reading

Ford Ranger Pickup Takes The Prize – For Now

Over the last year or so DriveWrite has been working through the various double cab pickup trucks on offer from a variety of manufacturers and I haven’t done yet. This time it is the turn of the Ford Ranger. Frustratingly, circumstances meant I have only just been able to spend a week with this vehicle, but fortunately it was worth the wait. Continue reading

But like any other revolution, not everybody wants to get in behind it. This makes sense: most humans like being in control.

Traffic Fury: Let The Need For Speed Recede

In light of the recent tragedy of three lads killed at a bus stop it seems reasonable to look again at the issue of speed. At the time of writing this the facts about this accident are not clear but the words ‘high speed’ have been reported. On today’s busy roads in this troubled country, as much as it might go against the grain, the need for controlling some drivers’ baser instincts is clear. In the case of this appalling accident it seems that even speed cameras festooned like fairy lights along that road would not have made any difference because the car was driven by a runaway coward for whom the law would probably not be a consideration.
