And here’s why:

The Car Expert

Take to the Road

Best for: Classic car lovers, owners and dreamers.

This site is a labour of love for classic car enthusiast, Niall Julian. Niall’s love of all things classic car related led to him launching his now award-winning blog in 2015. Running in tandem with Take to the Road is Niall’s YouTube channel featuring classic cars on the move.

Naill’s blog is full of sound advice for buying, owning and maintaining a classic car.

A fully independent site with no big backers, so you can be assured it’s bias free. Any advertorial content is marked as such, so you read their reviews and believe what they say. Imagery is bespoke and beautiful too. The site is run by 20-something Adam Tudor-Lane who has a refreshing take on automotive journalism today.
