Snobbery

Most of us are guilty of some sorts of snobbery from time to time. It is often a refinement of the (mis)information we receive at our parents’ and guardians’ feet, as they attempt to choose our chums, dress us according […]

Kids and Cars

It’s often the case with us car enthusiasts, that the vehicles we love are those we experienced as children. Today is my eldest offspring, Honor’s, 25th birthday, which throws my mind back to the first cars that she would have […]

Farewell to Ownership?

Recently I’ve enjoyed a number of conversations with a few folks involved in the potential future of car usage, and from these discussions I have come away with a certainty that there will be a, major impact on how we […]

The Internal Combustion Engine is Dead...

Long live the internal combustion engine. As we get ever closer to 2030 and the cessation of the manufacturing of cars with internal combustion engines, the volume of conversation over the use of such cars beyond that date is increasing. […]

Mistakes 1 - Dangerous Errors

I’m surprised at how few people in the world of motor vehicles admit to their mistakes, especially when it comes down to dangerous errors. But often the only way to learn from these things is to share the story of […]

The Glorious First of August

From 1967 to 1997, the first of August brought a flutter of excitement to British car enthusiasts, in a small but seemingly significant way. You see, it was on that day each year that new registration suffix or prefix letters […]

When the Tail Wagged the Dog

I’m certain that every week, somewhere in the world of classic car owners, someone has a hifalutin idea regarding vehicle logistics. In January 2010, I had one such logistical plan. It involved collecting my Jensen 5451R chassis from its fabulous […]

Lifts to Work

For much of the 1980s, I worked for the local, rather large bus company, the west Midlands Passenger Transport Executive. This came with a huge benefit, that being free travel on the company’s buses, those of the National Bus Company […]

Wonderful Windscreen Wipers

It all started when I was a small boy. I cannot pinpoint the exact moment, but it had certainly taken root by the time I was six years of age. The ‘it’ in question was a fascination with windscreen wipers, […]

The One That Got Away

The imminent second Manor Park Classics auction got me thinking about my admittedly scant past action on various sales floors in the past. The late 2000s saw me with something of a career change, as Technical Editor of Practical Classics […]

Soundscapes

For me, a huge part of the joy of old vehicles are the sounds that they make. This is something that appears to be true for many fans of all types of motor vehicles, what with the burgeoning exhaust note […]

People Moving

I well remember while at college in the very early 1980s doodling on the inside covers of my lever arch work folders. The doodles were often deliciously cruel caricatures of my fellow classmates (I too was on the receiving end […]

The Bings

As a boy, close to home I didn’t have any family members in the motor trade, well save for my birth mother and foster father, both of whom worked at Fort Dunlop, but I didn’t then see the beauty inherent […]

RTFM

Often, at SOS Workshop, when questions are asked the reply is a curt ‘RTFM’ or ‘Read the (flippin’) manual.’ I think that I may have been a strange boy. One Saturday afternoon in 1974/5, aged 10 years, I rode my […]
