  • GUEST BLOG: Cars and our connection…
    Oh yeah, we’ve only gone and got a real life Dr in the house. Namely Dr Jonathan Kershaw. He knows a bit about cars and our attachment to them, so when we pondered why we were so attached to our yellow Saab, the good Dr stepped in with ... read more

    If you like your trainers white, your baseball cap’s cap flat and your dub to be steppy, we have the car for you. This is the SEAT Ibiza Cupra. You could spend your money a bit more wisely and buy the FR version, which has the same ... read more

  • The Fiat Doblo…
    Maybe it’s because we’re now in our mid-thirties, so we simply don’t care what people think about us. Maybe we’ve taken a significant bump to the head without noticing. Or maybe we’ve quite simply taken leave of our senses. Whatever the reason may be, the fact remains ... read more

  • Your Cars: Charlie’s Alfa Romeo 166
    A cautionary tale here, so take heed. Not even the most sound-looking of sellers can be the picture of honesty, as Charlie found out… I’ve always been into Alfas Romeos, in fact those who follow my Twitter feed probably get bored of the amount of them I ... read more

  • No MOT… if you’re a berk
    Was your car registered on or before the 20th of May, 1978? It was? Well, in nine days you no longer need to bother yourself with getting an MOT. This is a brilliant initiative by the Government to make classic car ownership that bit more easy. And ... read more

  • Can we talk about ‘barn find’ cars?
    The Austin… What we have here is a scene that, if he had been born in the age of the automobile, Constable would have been happy to paint. Even with the Landcrab in situ. But despite there being no possibility of there ever being a Venn diagram ... read more

  • The BMW X3…
    Sigh. The BMW X3. It’s one of those cars we just don’t get. But, to quote Tom from Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels“the light is on and burning brightly for the masses.” And don’t get us wrong, we love a BMW. We’ve had plenty and we currently ... read more

  • The Mazda MX5…
    Once again, and without payment, we hand over the keys to Mark Longland. If you’d like Mark to make it to the next round, please text MARKY BABY CHIPS AND GRAVY to… hang on, this isn’t the X Factor. Um, here’s a Mazda… How grotty does the latest example ... read more

  • The dash cam and the self-righteous…
    So there I was, in the old 530i, minding my business on the M5 when I encountered my biggest motoring pet peeve – the middle lane hogger. No other traffic, just a Honda Jazz (it had to be, didn’t it?) bimbling along at 50-60mph, right there in ... read more

  • We won a thing!
    Normally when words happen on this site, they come from the editorial ‘we’. For those of you not familiar, the editorial ‘we’ is a trick us writists use to make our words have a bit more clout. It makes us sound a bit bigger than we are. ... read more

  • Scumbags. That’s what we’re dealing with here.
    Vincent Vega hit the nail on the head. “What’s more chickenshit than fu**ing with a man’s automobile? I mean, don’t fu** with another man’s vehicle.” Yes. Nail. Head. Hit. And right now, I know how he feels, I really do. “You need to call me now” read ... read more

  • What the hell happened to eBay motors?
    Selling a car online was, not too long ago, something of a giddy thrill. Those of you of a certain generation will remember when the only way – certainly the most effective way – to sell a car was through AutoTrader. And to do so meant a ... read more

  • Your Cars: Mark Case’s 1977 Mitsubishi Colt Sigma
    We’re getting the hang of this video stuff, we reckon. As you can see here, in this delightful little film about Mark Case’s 1977 Mitsubishi Colt Sigma. As cool cars go, they don’t get much cooler than this! Enjoy! ... read more

  • Five cars that will only go up in value…
    We all love money. It’s great, you can buy things with it. Things like cheese, or ornamental otters. You know, the really important stuff. The thing is, money – as our parents will always happily remind us – does not grow on trees. Despite being, technically, made ... read more

  • YOUR CARS: Siôn Hudson’s Escort
    We’ve been meaning to post this for ages, but never got round to it because, frankly, we’re lazy. But what are you going to do?  This YOUR CARS is somewhat different from the others. You see Siôn Hudson (no, we’re not sure how to pronounce it either) had, ... read more

  • Your cars – Rich Skuse’s E28 BMW 518i
    When we said we’d do video, we weren’t lying. This isn’t where the Kickstarter fund has gone though. No, this is something we were going to do anyway – bring you sweet little videos about your cars. First up it’s Rich Skuse who, for £1800, got himself ... read more

  • A boring update…
    Sorry, not a lot has happened with Project 800 of late. It’s just been sat in the car park, left looking sorry for itself. We blame Mother Nature for being an unforgivably snow bitch. And then for being far too moist. Interpret that as you will. You ... read more

  • The Jeep Cherokee…
    Jeep has become more than just a brand. It’s a name that people jump to when describing any 4×4 vehicle. You say Jeep and you could, to the uneducated ear, be talking about anything from an L200 to a Range Rover. As long as it’s big and ... read more
