The Next ‘Holy Trinity’

It’s the summer of 2013, I’ve just finished my GCSEs and despite the early start for my pubescent body, I am wired in the passenger seat of my dad’s Laguna eagerly anticipating our annual trip to the British Grand Prix… all is well in the world.

Fossil Fuelled Ban: 2030

Cover Art by William Matthews It would be quite the understatement to call this a bad year.

My uncle bought a new BMW and boy does it have some nostrils!

As I made my way back from an afternoon stroll, something resembling a tank caught my eye. Positioned rather proudly on my grandmother’s drive stood my uncle’s new toy; a 2019 BMW X5 45E X Drive, plug in to your heart’s desire, hybrid. Hmm. Now my uncle has long been a fan of PCP financeContinue reading “My uncle bought a new BMW and boy does it have some nostrils!”

Driving on the wrong side of the road needn’t be so strange…

As I near the tender age of 24, regrettably, my life long passion for cars has yet to be properly fulfilled. Most notably, ownership of my own set of wheels! Not the best start to a blog about cars but hey, you have to start somewhere! Soon after hearing of a further delay to myContinue reading “Driving on the wrong side of the road needn’t be so strange…”
