Owning a variety of interesting cars ranging from classic British sports cars to Porsches, a love affair with the Mazda MX-5 started in 2009, following a frustrating weekend away chasing an elusive ignition fault on a classic MG. Since then at least one MX-5 has always featured in the authors stable!
A keen traveller, Oliver usually spends his holidays touring Europe by car, looking for the most interesting roads (preferably leading to a good restaurant). Assisted by his very patient partner Sarah and their trusty Beagle, Bruce, who can usually be found curled up on a car seat in the workshop, life is always busy and interesting.
