About

Not all cars will be classics. Some could end up clunkers. I should know, I’ve owned a few (see below). Other cars will be ignored by most, when they should be snapped up and celebrated.

This is not a new car review site, it’s a unique buyer’s guide to the best and worst in used cars – old and kinda new.

So whether you need to buy a used car as your first set of wheels, you need basic transport, or you want to experience a different and affordable driving experience, hopefully you’ll find inspiration here.

Happy buying – and driving.
