Latest automotive insights


Shows, snow - the week

The start of the year usually has a pleasant familiarity to it - CES and Detroit shows and, in my case just this morning, often the first taste of winter snow. Also, in my case, hopefully the last sprinkle (it melted by lunch o'clock) as neither I nor the UK does snow. I always watch with amazement as friends in the US north east and midwest dig themselves out from up to eight feet of the stuff and carry on. We'd come to a grinding halt till about March and I'd move to southern California.
