Royal Enfield Bullet 500 EFI: Life In The Slow Lane

Ask anyone over a certain age about the halcyon days of British Motorcycle manufacturing and you’ll find the same names cropping up over and over again. B.S.A, Triumph, Norton, A.J.S and Matchless.

The Road of Death, in Bolivia.

Posted on

Have you checked you car recently. A friend of mine asked me the other day what I thought would be the worst car to breakdown in. This got me thinking. If I had all the money in the world, what car would I not want to breakdown in? A Bentley, an Aston Martin or maybe […]

Porsche 924 Doubloon – Project Phoenix

Posted on

There are rare cars and there are rare cars. Consider the Jaguar XJ220 with only 271 ever produced, that’s pretty rare. Take for example the beautiful Lamborghini LP400 with only 158 ever made, that’s rare. Both are practically full on, mass produced cars when compared to the Porsche 924 Doubloon.

Morgan Motor Cars – it’s just so British.

Posted on

I recently asked Morgan Motor Cars if it was possible to have a factory tour at their wonderful facility in ‘Malvern’. ‘Of course Morgan said, ‘we are more than happy to help out’ This was great news as it would give me the opportunity to not only see the cars still being traditionally hand built […]
