About Steve

Steve has been working on British cars, amongst others, for over 40 years. His specialty are cars from the BMC/BLMC stable. In the 1970s he lived in Wallingford, which is about 8 miles from Abingdon on Thames, of MG fame, and 15 miles from Cowley, Oxford, where BMW make the current Mini. His personal car fleet includes a 1967 Austin Mini Countryman, a 1970 MGB GT, a 1974 Triumph TR6 and a 1978 Mini 1275GT.

Professionally, Steve is an Engineer who has worked all over the world in various Engineering roles for large corporations. He has a Bachelors degree in Engineering Science from the University of Durham (UK). He is also a Member of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, as well as being a Chartered Engineer.
