Autocar Review—Car Magazine Review 

Author Elise  |  23rd November 2020

By Chris Williams It is very difficult to write a review of a car magazine/website as a petrolhead for one overarching reason: a visit to their website for an intel-gathering mission stays on course for all of thirty seconds before falling down an inescapable rabbit warren of distracting reviews and videos.

Author Elise  |  12th November 2020

By Niamh Smith ‘And They’re Off!’ The AMC Javelin was one of the last pony cars to leave the stable. They had already been pipped to the post by the big three (GM, Ford and Chrysler) and had already “been there, done that, got the t-shirt!”.  But for AMC, being late to the party wasn’t the disaster you would think.
