Route 66 Illinois (Part 1)

Route 66 Illinois and the city of Chicago is the official start to the route. Not only is the "official" start sign it's also the state I think with the most things to do. From the city of Chicago that we loved, through to places like Pontiac (yes the home of Pontiac), the State capitol of Springfield, Joliet and Wilmington. If you are doing the more traditional route of East to West (like we started our journey). You'll get the sense of the whole trip starting and the enjoyment that's to come. There is so much history on this part of the route, you'll struggle at times to know when to stop and start! Because there is SO much in…

What cars are in my dream garage for less than £10k

So I wrote a post about a month ago about what cars would be in my dream garage. You can read that post here. I had a number of people message me and say that I should do a post on my dream garage but with a upper price limit of only £10,000. Whilst these perhaps might not be the dream dream garage cars it's also perhaps more realistic and achievable garage. In pulling this list together I've found cars on Auto Trader website up to the value of £10,000.

What cars are in my dream garage??

So anyone who follows this blog will know I'm a big car nut. Anything (within reason) with 4 wheels on and I'm interested. This doesn't apply to every vehicle - I mean a Dacia Sandero isn't exactly going to float my boat. But you get the idea. I've got a bucket list of things I want to do in life. I've also got a bucket list of Cars. Now these aren't all road legal and some let's say aren't the most practical but if money wasn't an object what would be positioned in my Dream Garage? Going straight in with a non road legal and non practical one as my first purchase! This is the most beautiful F1 car of…

Volkswagen Golf GTD Review

So how do I sum up the Volkswagen Golf GTD. Let's put it like this. I've only once bought a suit from Marks and Spencer. It was 1994 and I was 14, my Mother thought that was the place to get suit's from. Ever since that day I've never bought a suit from the place again. It's just that M and S are just, well you know, yes that. You can't really sum them up as a luxury designer brand. It's that sort of thing like the Ronseal add. It does what it say's on the tin. This was my same view about the Volkswagen Golf. Volkswagen's famous 1987 advert of the woman leaving her husband with the tag line…
