Air My Dirty Laundry
Forgive me, I have been tardy of late. It has been more than 3 months since my last confession. In my defence, the World Cup got in the way, and I have been busy finishing off the final draft of my new novel, entitled “Dirty Laundry.”
Though it is not exactly about local pre-owned vehicular gems, it does involve all manner of combustible engines and various forms of transport that can be found in South America. For those with any interest, it is out now on Amazon Kindle – click here. Or you can order a paperback version here.
If I can’t plug my work on my own site, where can I?
Now back to the cars ….
Frixo has been in touch recently, a UK based free traffic report service, to suggest that for anyone planning a trip to Old Blighty that they should check with them before heading off anywhere. With clogged and congested arteries seemingly at any time of the day or night, if memory serves me correctly, this could be a god send.
All you do is select by city, motorway or A-road you want to travel on followed by the direction, then just click Get Report to get the latest live updates and traffic information. They will outline any delays, incidents and information that will affect your journey.

The BBC take’s up the story …
It seems I have a new favourite Jag, with news that the XJ now joins the XF and soon to be released F-Type and adds the letter R to its title. With 550 bhp and a 0-100 km/h time of around 4.4 seconds, all of my family can enjoy the old adage – grace, space, pace. Can’t wait till it hits the second hand markets and becomes a little more reasonably priced.
