National Seniors, Fifty Up, OK Over 45, War Veterans, Pensioners, and Self-Funded Retirees are all members of a wide buying demographic with one of the most substantial disposable incomes.

As far as I can determine, the social distancing protocols introduced by the National Cabinet seems to be working effectively. Social Distancing is a nuincance, but socially responsible.

I try as best as I can to manage the purchase of fuel for my cars. Suzi and I went for a country drive up to Kilcoy last weekend with the fuel gauge showing half when we left. I thought we’d fill up sometime on Sunday but didn’t. So when

I know that there’s a lot of websites that offer car reviews, car road tests, opinions on various cars and the like. What makes this site different is that I’m not going to bore you with technical information about the various cars that I review.
I’ve been in the car business for over 39 years. I’ve read the motoring magazines cover to cover. I’ve read the online reviews until my eyes were square. Everywhere that I go, I find motoring journalists talking about car speeds – 0 – 100 km per hour, standing ¼ times, the inclination of this and that at 150klm per hour on a 12.5% gradient curve, in rainy weather – and other stuff that bores me no end.
thecarguy.com.au is taking a different path on the journey to helping you purchase a new car. I’ll do my best to advise you on what I consider to be the most important information when it comes to that major decision to purchase a car. Interior room, features of the car, fuel economy, safety, service prices, resale and lots more. I’ll tell you what I like about a particular car and as importantly, what I don’t like, to find at least to be less than I think a car should have. .
And I’ll ask for your opinion. Take some pics of what you’re driving and tell me and our audience what you particularly like or dislike about your car. Because besides prospective new car buyers, there’s a lot of people who’ll read your comments as used car buyers.
So, jump on board, strap yourself in and let’s start out on the journey with The Car Guy.
