I've been a petrol-head since I was born, my first words were 'car' and 'go', and apparently if I didn't settle down at night I was taken for a drive in the country to put me to sleep!
I now live on the edge of Sherwood Forest in a 400 year old cottage, which fortunately was once the local taxi depot, so came with a large garage - the estate agents were non-plussed when I said I was looking for a garage with house attached - How many bedrooms, Sir? One will do!
Details of my cars, past and present, will soon appear in the appropriate section ...
Just joined the Final gear forums, now i have somewhere to look at other peoples rides and toss back ideas for modifications and cars.

We have on two occasions gone on top gear style road trips where a couple of us will spend under 2 grand on a shit car and go on a road trip and see who picked the best one and got it closest to a certain theme, just last month we drove from houston to South padre island in Coupe's and had tests to see who could carry the most cargo, who could do a quarter mile on a wet beach fastest. and who could pick up a girl in their car on the beach and bring her back to the place we had rented for the week. ( i lost the last one badly Rip the Acura integra i had)
We're actually considering investing in some go pro's and extra gear and setting up a youtube channel where we'd do trips like this more often if it sounds intersting to anyone. assume its a topgear road trip with a unfiltered cast that consists of no celebrity's and no one is over the age of 25 XD.
Hello everyone, my name is Tim and I live in the UK. I don't own a car at the moment unfortunately for me but life goes on and that will change soon I hope. I'm a bit of an Audi fanboy, having seen the original Audi Quattro on a plinth at a car show as a teenager and liking the brand ever since, but I like most German cars in reality.
Looking forward to The Grand Tour second series and posting here of course.
