Hello and welcome to the Vauxhall Collective, I’m here to explain a little about myself and my brand new website too. Essentially I’m a car fanatic and have a particular love for Vauxhall’s. In all of my years of driving I’ve owned three different types of Vauxhall, including their flagship models; the Astra and the Corsa. I’m intending on spending some time writing about both myself and also reviewing any of the latest car models that I get to test out. I’ve already had the pleasure of driving the majority of Vauxhall models that are currently being produced, however in the future I’m going to be testing some of the older and of course more classic one’s too.
Right from the out I’d like to put it out there that anybody reading this can let me know if they want a particular model reviewing and I’m totally open to looking at different manufacturers too – if that’s what you all want to see, simply let me know in the comments section below each post and I’ll get back to you with what I think as soon as I can. Anyway, enough about the blog and a bit more about myself. I’m 29, I current live in North London – Wood Green to be particular. Unfortunately since I’m living in London I don’t always get the chance to drive around, as you would all expect, it’s just so much easier to use the fantastic public transport down here. Obviously for somebody like me, this isn’t really ideal as I derive so much enjoyment from taking my baby out for a spin.
For the past 3 years I’ve had a 1.6 liter Astra, it has a number of modifications on it that I’ve made over the years, and of course I’m looking at adding to it further in the future, as my wallet permits! I’m currently working in the banking industry, not the most exciting of jobs, however I’m going to be looking at heading back to University soon to try and get into a different niche. You’re probably wondering why I’d make such a rash change of lifestyle, however I’m of the thought that if you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, or don’t feel challenged enough – then it’s time to move on. There’s no point wasting your life doing something that doesn’t fulfill everything that you want from it.
Before I moved down to London I lived up in Newcastle, where I did my undergraduate. I saved up all my money to come down here to chase the city dream, but it was wholly unfulfilled for me and I’m now searching for another challenge elsewhere. Hopefully somewhere where I am a lot more flexible to drive my car, and also hopefully somewhere where I can save a bit more money for new cars and obviously new modifications too! Cheers for checking out my blog, please come back in a few days to follow up on my first review of the new Vauxhall Astra 2016.
