I'm looking for interesting stories, personal memories, restoration stories, dodgy deals and fun memoirs relating to motoring in what are known as classic, or vintage, cars.

This page is for stories that relate to classic cars owned by people now. Recollections of motoring from years ago, will now feature in the Motoring Memories Project on oldclassiccar.

Do you own an older car, or perhaps a fleet of 'classics' ? I'd be interested to hear about cars owned not just in the UK, but around the world. Stories featured so far relate to cars and vehicles in the UK, Australia, Canada, Malta, USA, Sweden, Africa, and France.

I've had some car stories sent over already, but more are welcomed!

If you have an interesting, fun, or just plain weird tale to tell with a motoring theme to it, and you'd be willing to have it published on this site, please please get in touch! I'll then feature it either on this page if it is about a classic owned now/recently, or in the Motoring Memories Project section if it relates to motoring in years gone by.

If you like to contact me with your story, please contact me via the email address on this page, it'd be great to hear from you : Contact Page.

Some ideas of stories that I'd be interested to feature:
  • Restoration stories
  • Driving lorries in years gone by
  • National Service that involved driving lorries, tanks, staff cars, or whatever
  • Bus or coach driving after the war
  • Driving holidays
  • Driving abroad, perhaps having your car flown to France by Silver City Airways
  • Racing in sprints or motor club events in the 1950s/60s/70s
  • Cars that you bought, but should have avoided at all cost!
  • Buying a classic today and finding that is was a lemon
  • The trials and tribulations of your restoration project
  • Running a car dealership in the 1950s or 1960s
  • Discovering vintage or veteran cars in the 1960s before interest in old cars really took off
  • Motorcycle ownership when most bikes in the UK were British built
  • Memories of being a trainee mechanic during the fifties or sixties
  • Being a traffic police driver when the first motorway was introduced
  • Your first car, now long gone but well remembered
So if you have any tale to recount, either recent or from years ago, please consider emailing it to me. Anonymity, if you so wish, guaranteed!!
