The following are the reminiscences of our former President, Alan Domville, who for many years was the writer behind the popular motoring column in the Warrington Guardian, Warrington’s weekly newspaper.
Here, in an exclusive set of articles originally published in our regular newsletter, he recalls the highs and lows of his long and colourful career driving and writing about many of the cars on our roads today and in former times.
He has kindly allowed us to publish them here in a collection of stories recalling the adventures and experiences of a motoring journalist and the many larger-than-life characters he met in the motor industry and in the places he visited while writing for the Warrington Guardian.
