I’ve loved golf for as long as I can remember. I started playing at Victoria Park Golf Club (soon to become our version of New York’s Central Park) in the early 70’s when a mate and I went for a hit and giggle. Shame then that I didn’t achieve the
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
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
‘An electric Ferrari would be like a Fender Strat without the strings: lovely design, no music’ – Gavin Green Hello, Bob Aldons, the Car Guy with an opinion piece regarding the lowering of emission standards in Australia. In his article published in Car Magazine back in February this year, Contributor-in-chief,
Hi, Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, re-posting a story from Jeremey Clarkson. From The Australian last Saturday, Clarkson wails about the Ferrari 812 Superfast. I like the way Clarkson writes. He’s humorous, factual and a lucky bastard for getting the chance to drive the worlds most exclusive cars. Here’s what
Clever safety features let even amateurs get the best of Ferrari’s latest – the Ferrari 488 Pista – and the English translation of Pista? Track! Be still my beating heart. It’s Bob Aldons, The Car Guy, with an opinion piece on the upcoming Ferrari 488 Pista. The guys from
Dan Neill, a writer for The Australian, is one of those lucky bastards that get invitations to view, drive and write on some of the world’s great cars. Unfortunately, Dan met Mr. Pagani in Monterey USA rather than his atelier in Modena. And again, unfortunately, I’m not on the list
It happened with Maserati, and Lamborghini, could it even happen with Ferrari? Rumors circulating overseas and particularly a report in Car Magazine UK suggests that a variation of the GTC4 Lusso may have all wheel drive architecture with a petrol V8 hybrid engine. Seems that Sergio Marchionne has commissioned a
No matter where you’re at in the entrepreneur journey, undoubtedly you need to have a reliable car. And whether that’s a new car, a late model used example, or if you’ve reached that point, a supercar like this Ferrari F430, there’s a few tricks and traps to purchase. Here’s an
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.
