Craig replaces Keith Adams in the big chair – but he has plenty of form when it comes to the love of British cars. Before he spent time heading up PR for Chevrolet and Holden, Craig was a writer for Auto Express in the years running up to MG Rover’s demise, and is one of the few journalists who treated the failing company even-handedly. Before that, he worked for Land Rover Owner, Classic Cars and Practical Classics, after starting his career on Classic Car Weekly, where Keith Adams is now Editor. Is a self-confessed sufferer of Compulsive Heap Purchasing Disorder (CHPD), and has more Rovers in his possession than is rightly considered sane!

Happy both in the service bays or showrooms, Mike’s passions revolve around all things MG Rover or SAAB and has extensive experience of Leyland’s Buck & Truss empire too. More recently, his ramblings are to be found in Car Mechanics magazine. A HGV & PSV licence holder too, much of his spare time is devoted to the new love in his life… His Rover 75 Club SE. Contact Mike with queries on powertrain systems – K -Series and Commercial/PSV technical stuff.
He might come from Essex and have an irrational, if understandable, love of Uncle Henry’s finest, but Andrew’s encyclopaedic knowledge of the automotive industry is a constant source of new material for AROnline. Check out his detailed stories on Midas and Trident to see what we mean…Now he’s busy adding to his growing collection of cars, which includes a Vauxhall Astra automatic and a dead BMW 5-Series. Hmm.

Clive claims that his interest in the BMC>MG story dates back to his childhood in the 1960s when the family’s garage premises were leased to a tenant with an Austin agency. However, back in the 1920s and 1930s, his grandmother was one of the country’s first female Garage Proprietors so cars probably run in his genes! Admits to affairs with Alfa Romeos, but currently owns a rare 06/06 MG TF 135… Clive, who was AROnline’s News Editor for nearly four years, stood down from that role in order to devote more time to various Motor Racing projects but he still contributes articles on as regular basis as his other commitments permit.

Currently Detroit-based Automotive News’ Engineering and Technology Reporter, Richard Truett is a lifelong Triumph and Rover fan. Despite living in Motown, his drive looks like it’s forever Canley, with a collection of Triumphs to make any fan of the great marque go weak at the knees.As he so eloquently puts it, ‘In the States, if you drove an MG or Triumph or had a Rover sedan, you were part of a different crowd.You had friends everywhere you went. You thumbed your nose at the mainstream.’ And today, he also drives an EFi powered Triumph TR8 and beautifully-kept Triumph Stag. Good man…

Robert grew up on a street in Glasgow where everybody seemed to own Minis, Minors and 1100s. The hands-on approach these cars required was the start of a lifelong fascination. Despite learning to drive in an ADO16, he confesses to a lifetime of automotive apostasy and an omnivorous interest in cars of all origins. An unexpected posting to Birmingham, for the two years before the axe fell on MG Rover, rekindled his interest in BMC>MG and a number of contributions to AROnline have followed.As well as contributing to AR’s forums, he writes his own 5ivegearsinreverse blog which he describes as ‘automotive observations occasionally informed by an arcane body of obsessively-garnered knowledge, but more often simply by disbelief, bewilderment, and spite.’
