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. I've been lucky enough to collect some and drive the heck out of them, including autocrossing and racing them. 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!
