And as someone who’s always...

  If you passed your driving test in the late ‘80s / early ‘90s, I’m willing to bet that you did-so a Fiesta. On the other hand, was it a Micra, a Corsa, or a Clio? I used to teach people to drive in a Corsa: BSM pyramid, phone number on the side…  Anyway as I was saying, back then Lancia Deltas, and Toyota Corollas fought over World Rally Championships, the Sierra Cosworth dominated the British...

      If ever there was a name to evoke images of neat little British post-war sports-cars, then surely it would be MG. Their famous octagonal badge has graced the radiators of some of the most instantly recognisable roadsters ever built; perfect Sunday morning soft-tops such the T-type, the Midget, the MGA, probably most famously the MGB and MGBGT, the rarer MGC,  and the relatively more recent...

  I knew it!  I said they would… Apparently, European SUV sales of are beginning to drop. It’s as a result of environmental concerns. Owners of SUVs aren’t replacing them like-for-like because of their fuel consumption, and their – the owners that is – carbon footprint. Or so I’ve heard…  But the source of said rumours is a good one: Peugeot’s CEO, Jean-Philippe Imperato. And let’s face it, if...

    Storm Doris blew in just as my week with Peugeot’s new 3008 SUV started; Storm Ewan blew in right in the middle of it. Trees came down, power supplies were cut off in places for a little while, and top it all off the local water authority took it upon themselves to shut my usual road to work.   In this part of the already Far Un-lit Unknown that means long diversions on poorly surfaced single...
