About Jamie Palmer

I've been a car nut ever since I can remember, loving all cars but having a special affinity for eclectic British ones, starting with an Austin-Healey Sprite when I was 12.

There's nothing more fun than poking around an old car that hasn't been disturbed in years and getting it to run and drive again!

What A Sad Story! 1963 Alfa Romeo Spider

The Silver Fox: 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Garage Find

Atlanta To Scappoose! 1959 Jaguar Mark I
