Now here is a treat for your ears from a pair of petrolheads based in the UK.

My Dad’s Car is a trip down memory lane, recalling vehicles from yesteryear with a selected guest who may or may not choose to cite their father’s choice of wheels for the benefit of the tape.

In the interest of representation, mothers, aunts, siblings, grandparents, friends and neighbours’ cars are all equally welcome as conversation starters too.

Created by Andy Gregory and Jon Recknell, the duo are ex-colleagues from a car and cycling accessories shop who have since forged individual careers for themselves in automotive marketing, More >


Over the years it has become apparent that the fitment of 45DCOE carburettors to certain newer types of engines (such as Ford Zetec and Duratec) will result in a flat spot just off idle that no amount of calibration will eradicate.

Webcon has studied this characteristic in detail and has developed a very specific procedure to modify three or four progression hole models to five progression holes. This delivers the precise extra amount of mixture in the progression phase to overcome this flat-spot resulting in a smoother more progressive transition from idle to main.

Burton Power has announced that it now has More >

Making an unplanned stop on a public road can be dangerous. Older cars, including plenty of vintage/classic style kitcars, are harder to illuminate during a breakdown situation. Making your car as visible as possible is essential in such situations.

Until now, the invaluable assistance provided by a hazard warning light system in 6-volt cars has meant bulky and complicated equipment that looks out of place on early cars.

However, this neat new kit from Better Car Lighting offers a great solution and uses a small push-button to activate the system and it works with standard or LED bulbs and has a traditional More >


Also new from Meguiar’s and another newcomer to their Hybrid Ceramic lineup is called Pre-Wax Prep and shares the same pleasing smell as the exterior trim product although the bottle is a different colour here (bright red).

It is super easy to apply and is almost a wipe on; wipe off type elixir that does remove swirl marks and helped revive some tired-looking paint on my friend’s 20-year-old Jaguar XJ, which due to a gearbox problem has been parked up for several months, meaning the paint has been neglected.

Already one of the leading authorities on all matters Citroën 2CV and definitely one of the hardest working, Darren Arthur of The 2CV Shop in Warminster has now been appointed UK distributor for the excellent 2CV-based Burton.

The car has always sold extremely well in Benelux but has never really gained a foothold here, mainly because sales elsewhere were so strong. It was launched in year 2000 and was the work of Dutch brothers, Iwan and Dimitri Göbel, enthusiastic 2CV specialists.
