Definitely Motoring takes a break

YOU might have been wondering from the lack of updates in recent times. Is on whether I still bother with writing my blog, or whether my interest in cars has faded away. I can assure you, that I still love my cars as much as I did when I was a youngster.

The things is though, that I have been very busy of late with what's been going on in my personal and professional life. The changes of circumstances in the present and in the near future take precedence to that. Thus, Definitely Motoring has unfortunately fallen down the pecking order. Hence why I've not been writing, nor posting as much new material as I'd like to. That's why there's been no or very little updates in recent times.

I won't go into great depth or detail here, because (it's more than likely) I will bore you to death with the gobbledygook. As of now, Definitely Motoring remains active but is taking a hiatus. 

It's not a matter of if I will come back. It's a matter of when. I can't really confirm when I will be back, as some things haven't been set in stone as I write this. But do keep your eyes peeled on a lookout for future updates. Nevertheless, my blog will still be here for you to hopefully enjoy reading; by flicking through the content in my carchive, and maybe leave some comments if you'd like.

Before I go, take care and all the best.

Luke :)

BOTTLED IT!: Ford Fiesta MK3

Very well marketed, but the product in question by the Blue Oval was a half-arsed effort. A triumph of marketing over engineering.

UNSUNG HEROES: Peugeot 405

Very much forgotten and in banger territory today. But the 405 reflects a golden era for Peugeot.

Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip

If you like cars and into modern history. It’s definitely worth a watch.

YOU’LL probably know Paul Hollywood best for being on The Great British Bake-Off alongside Mary Berry. While we all know his love and passion for food. Little did I know that he has a keen interest in cars – and something that has been a lifelong passion of his.

In the three-part series, Hollywood travels to Italy, Germany and France. He looks at how cars have been an influence on people, and society of their respective countries where they were made. Also in making their mark in history, reflection of their culture, and playing their part in shaping up their national identity.

If you have seen James May’s Car of the People, then you will probably enjoy watching Paul Hollywood’s Big Continental Road Trip. It's informative yet entertaining.

If you want to watch the show. It is available to watch on BBC iPlayer*.
