I went to see Ad Astra on the weekend, but of more importance was the trailer for Ford v Ferrari due for release in November this year. Ad Astra? yea, not bad, not good. I’ve taken the following article from Wikipedia. The last ‘motorsport’ movie I saw was Senna and

Make no mistake. Every German company wants to conquer the world in every facet of their business. Pre-dieselgate, Volkswagen was convinced that they’d be the number one manufacturer of automobiles. They saw the need to tamper with the emissions on a range of their cars and this was no small
Non rovinare tutto, amico. I fantasmi di Fiorano ti stanno guardando. Ok, so I’m jealous – Mark Vaughn from autoweek.com drove the yet to be released in Australia, Ferrari F8 Tributo in Italy. I don’t get the opportunity to drive the supercars of this world, but I’m happy to share
I couldn’t help but use the word, instead of the real one, Frankfurt. Whenever I see Frankfurt, the Rocky Horror Picture Show comes to mind. So what’s happening in Frankenfurter with e-cars?

Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with yesterday’s press release from Ford Motor Company announcing the return of the 2020 Ford Fiesta ST to Australia. Now, first things first. I am NOT a fan of Ford’s passenger range, even though that’s where I started in the motor industry in 1978.
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.
