I’ve always loved cars, but I wouldn’t describe myself as a car nut.  I’ve rarely bought modern motoring magazines for example and I  find  the  endless chatter by the motoring journalists a bit tedious, yet somehow here I am scratching out a living writing about cars.  Curious isn’t it how life works out?  Still, the […]
