About me

No working title – a new career in progress

Independent, freelance motoring & lifestyle writer.

United Kingdom:
Leasing Options, Flush The Fashion, Total Vehicle Leasing,
Driver Buddy, Beautiful South Magazine,

South Africa: Magazine SA.

It would be wrong of me to suggest I know more than most about cars, because I don’t. I merely combine a lifetime’s enthusiasm of cars and motoring with the last eight years as a motoring and lifestyle writer.

I am aware of what I like – and what I don’t. Like wine-tasting, all views are subjective.

I pen car reviews, first-drive reports, auto technology and lifestyle articles for both conventional print and online publishing – for a small stipend, you understand. I am not a ‘part-time blogger’ as I work hard at being a full-time professional writer, which is my sole source of poverty-dodging income. BTW, I don’t write for free, so please don’t ask.

This website exists merely to keep Google’s algorithms interested in my professional profile. I publish the occasional news item along with my own articles that have either been published elsewhere some time ago or are time-expired due to the arrival of new models or mid-life face lifts, etc.

I am blessed with unfettered access to the press fleets of most of the UK’s mainstream car industry such as Ford, Kia, Nissan, Honda, etc., and more niche manufacturers like Lotus, Morgan, Rolls-Royce and Tesla, etc.

Please have a rummage through the Brand Portfolio link above for the evolving list of car manufacturers with whom I closely work.

Thanks for dropping by, and remember: Please don’t drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.

    Hi Les, yes we do indeed. I remember your Rover very well. Such good times! It’s a shame you didn’t bring it here…be worth a very shiny penny now!

    Agree! I’ve seen one around these parts (SO32) in the past few years. I remember it looking quite tidy for its age. As for the Toyota Hilux ‘bakkie’ well not a lot can beat it for indestructibility…as TopGear proved. Game on indeed!

    Good blog Wayne – I reckon the trusty Datsun would be a good match for the Toyota Hilux pickup in terms of unstopability! Game on!
