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 has been AROnline’s News Editor for nearly four years, has decided to stand down from that role in order to devote more time to a Motor Racing project but he still intends to contribute articles on as regular basis as his other commitments permit

Currently working for Ford in Detroit, 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.’
If you cut Steven’s veins, he’d bleed what he calls The Firm. A lifelong fan of MG Rover and their predecessors, he has carved a successful career selling cars, with his favourites inevitably hailing from Longbridge. His greatest dream was to have his own MG dealership, but – alas – it hasn’t so far been… but there’s still time.
Kevin works in the automotive business, but devotes much of his spare time indulging in his passion for Princesses – and other Rover Group cars. He currently owns the most famous Wedge in the country – Snappy – which has appeared at many shows and events in the UK, and runs the very impressive Leyland Princess website.
Kevin is happiest when dishing out sensible buying advice…Contact Kevin if you have any Wedge related queries, or fancy some buying advice.

With a strong passion for the later MG Rover cars, Adam owned an MG ZS for almost three years, and considers it the best car he has owned.day family commitments mean the ZS has given way to a Citroen C3 Picasso, although an MGB GT fulfills his need for a proper car.A lover of all things automotive, Adam often contributes to both AROnline’s editorial content, and its forum.
