Quentin is a proper, ocean-going car guy.
He presented Top Gear for a decade, is an award-winning motoring journalist, writes for numerous national newspapers and magazines, and has campaigned successfully for stuff like fairer new car prices and cheaper fuel with his million signature FairFuelUK campaign. He’s the bloke who saves us billions – literally.
But when he’s not scrapping with the government about petrol prices he’s got a serious weakness for classic cars. As well as creating the first TV classic car show on the BBC, The Car’s The Star, he’s written loads of books, been a columnist for hard-core old car magazines for years, and bought and sold hundreds of pensionable old motors from Mini Coopers to Maserati Ghiblis.
He remembers classic car facts like you and I remember holidays, and can magically predict which classics are going up in price – or down. Oh, and he actually owns and drives things like a Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible, Ford Mustang, three Daimler Darts, a Bentley and one of the cutest 1959 Minis you’ve ever seen. Quentin has an untreatable affliction for old cars.
