Read The Blogs Here

Here you’ll find the blogs for each car, and one more for anything else I get up to that is vaguely relevant.

Social Media


Join in on Facebook, laugh along with me at the comments, you know there are going to be some telling me I am doing it all wrong


It is a bit like Facebook, but nobody really understands why some people prefer Instagram, but apparently they do


I do occasionally make videos of things too, very occasionally, but they will be here, contain your excitement

No More Socials

Three social media accounts is enough, right? Find me on another one, it's not me!

Read this blog about my little bit of V8 insanity. Yes it is true it has no safety features, no ABS, no crash protection, no airbags and it is right that the switches make absolutely no sense, find the inside door handles…

This surprisingly nice to drive car belongs to my wife and is her daily drive to work. While on the face of it, this is a no frills basic model, it is very well equipped considering it is fairly low down the model line up. One of the very last of this shape, it was an ex Kia UK car and came with a new 7 year warranty when we bought it just over a year old…

My previous daily drive, the little known Kia Proceed GT-Line S Shooting Brake. This 1.4 turbo petrol automatic in an unusually rare trim level with just over 600 examples in the UK is no longer offered for sale from Kia UK, who knows why, it is fantastic with toys the BMW and Audi drivers can only dream of…

Not really specific to one of my cars, perhaps I went to a show, helped a friend out, had a BBQ, broke the shed door (again), or spent the day trying to convince the better half that I still need a double decker bus and it’ll be alright on the driveway and how I am sure the neighbours won’t mind at all.
