Gavin’s fascination - OK, obsession - with cars started at an early age. When not making pretend traffic jams on the living room floor, he could be found at his local toy shop, hunting down miniature versions of his favourite cars. Not for him, the lure of the Ferrari Testarossa or Lamborghini Countach. Oh no, Gavin preferred the likes of the Renault 5 Le Car, MKIIi Escort Ghia or MK1 Golf (complete with roof-mounted surfboards).
Today, this love of old, unfashionable and mundane cars continues, only now he gets to play with the real things. When not writing about cars, Gavin will either be sat on the A303 or eating Hobnobs. He’s the creator, editor and chief waffler at PetrolBlog.com, whilst contributing to Motoring Research, MSN Cars, Diesel Car, Business Car Manager and, of course, Nationwide Vehicle Contracts.
