Sometimes, I write about cars that may be their owner’s pride and joy but are nonetheless old heaps. And sometimes I get close to true show cars that are so posh they are not fit to drive every day. But this time, it was all about the Lady. Or rather the Fairlady as this Z is a FAIRLADY Z. It’s i...

I was having a really good day today. My huge hench builder/painter/plumber/paviour/electrician/philosopher geezer Adam Evans O’Connell (two proud Irish and Welsh families, neither willing to lose a surname) was at my house to help me shift a granite garden ornament from my Volvo to my garden. It...

It’s funny, if you live long enough and remain in a market long enough, you start to acquire legendary status.

Extracted from my editorial this week: I have done national radio about how we have had no warden enforcement at all on my local parade in the past. It was brilliant. Nowadays on my local high-street, parking is 20p for an hour or you just press the button for a free half-hour display-in-window t...

Once, for Home Cinema Choice magazine, I was sent to write up the home theatre of a genuine first generation Elvis fan.

“The Ice T meetings have a long and illustrious history for Talk Audio. For as well as meets up and down the land and those on the beach, there is the yearly bash held i...
