Author Elise  |  9th November 2020

By Charlie Fuller When I was invited to write for Muscle Car UK, I wanted to start with a bang. When I think about classic Mustangs and American muscle cars, this extraordinary story of American wartime solidarity always jumps to my mind. Picture the scene: it’s the late sixties and the Vietnam War is raging on with no end in sight.  At this time, there was a ...

Author Elise  |  27th October 2020

By Chris Williams The way I prefer to watch motorsport is contrary to the way I prefer to watch rugby. My sofa, craft beer of my choice, superb camerawork, and some mates to argue the rules with makes for a tremendous rugby experience.

But what a muscle car is… is ...

By Niamh Smith The First Ladies of Motorsport  Better reactions, tighter control, sharper clarity… factors that influenced a significant number of people I meet at the track to attest that the best racing drivers are women.

Author Elise  |  25th June 2020

As soon as I took the call, I knew something had happened. The voice on the other end I knew well: it belonged to Paul, owner of Muscle Car UK. He sounded tired, yet happy. There was a tremor of excitement in him I hadn’t heard in a while. “A fantastic car,” he said. “Absolutely fantastic.” Because, ladies and gentlemen, Muscle Car UK had just welcomed home ...
