So let’s address the obvious first, the title of this blog, yes, the dictionary definition of an Autophile is ‘one who loves themselves’. I have to admit that I feel blogging is a pretty self-indulgent pastime, so it seemed appropriate when chosing the name. Fortunately the term ‘Autophile’ also has a more common inference, simply someone who loves cars.
Cars have been a fascination and passion of mine since I was a child and this blog is a collection of anecdotes, tall tales, journeys and personal observations generally related to cars.
To protect the innocent, the guilty and most importantly my drivers licence, I am oblidged to change certain individuals names, geographical locations and recorded speeds in the course of my writings.
