How To Build Your Own Roll Cage

A roll cage is a metal framework built into the driver cockpit in a vehicle. It is constructed to reinforce the vehicle and protect the passengers from serious injury in the event of an accident. Although roll cages are mainly used in stunt and race cars, due to their more vigorous driving style, they are also often found in off-road trucks. Roll cages are not essential for every-day vehicles, although some may be fitted with a simple ‘roll bar’, which is a steel bar that runs up the sides and across the top of the vehicle to provide a degree of rollover protection.

Ford Focus RS: It’s A Hot Hatch Love-In!

If you are prone to nausea then please look away now as this article is a prime example of an over-the-top automotive love-in. You see, the word that immediately springs to my mind here is, Wow! I had to keep telling himself that this car is, after all, a Focus, the mainstay of the mainstream market. But this is no ordinary Ford, oh no. It is very special yet the vehicle in the images, with its special Ford Focus RS sparkly paint and a number of must-have extras, like those awesome wheels, costs just £36,545 in the UK which in my opinion is a bit of a bargain that sets new benchmarks for driving at this price point. See the full spec below. Continue reading

Driving Courteously Not Selfishly

Returning from the South Coast on the day after August Bank Holiday is always going to test the patience of a saint and I am not saintly. When a driver, in part at least, brings travel trouble upon himself, it is even worse; at least that’s my recent experience. I also found that the idea of driving courteously seems to be a thing of the past. Continue reading

Car Mechanics Less Popular Than Estate Agents Shock

A few days ago I wrote about an excellent independent garage that now attends to my personal transport and a jolly good job they do too. Main dealers are more expensive and can be intimidating places for people who are not versed in car knowledge. Now, although we live in a modern world ablaze with the white heat of cutting edge technology, some things seemingly never change. A survey has just offered the opinion that customers hate dealing with repair garages and car mechanics more than any other trade. Continue reading

Why I Choose An Independent Garage

Although I have the privilege of driving many and various cars I still enjoy my own wheels and ensure that my vehicle is always in tip-top working order and, crucially, clean and waxed. This is how it should be. I bought the car new from a main dealership that was poor from the off. Rightly, it no longer exists. Nevertheless, for the first three warranty years, I dutifully took my car along for its annual service at the garage for which I was billed at main dealer prices. I know I could have had it maintained elsewhere but I was idle and could not be bothered to do my research. Continue reading
