Ford Mustang GT Driven

In 1964 Ford hit the jackpot, they had learnt in the past all about producing cars in volume, the Model A for instance, and latterly about attractive design, think T-Bird. But in the April of ‘64 they combined these two things to devastating effect in the hugely successful Mustang, something that was well worth celebrating […]

Jaguar XKR Driven

Some cars propel you to sixty miles an hour like a scolded cat and then seem to run out of puff. The Jaguar XKR is not one of those, although if taken by the scruff of the neck it will leap off the line like the proverbial fast feline with hot paws. Mostly though it […]

Delorean DMC 12 Driven

The Delorean DMC 12 is famous for two things. The first its role in the ‘Back to the Future’ film series, as the unlikely choice of a plutonium powered time machine that used Sci-Fi wizardry such as Flux Capacitors.
