Writewheel Publishing for e-books on the Mercedes SLK,  life in the police service, the Rover V8 engine as fitted to TVRs and a blog on life. I talk to you about life.

Brooklands, the first dedicated motor racing circuit, hosted the Double 12 over the weekend of 16-17 June. It was an occasion for anyone interested in vintage cars. The place was packed with the knowledgeable and the delighted, all enjoying the simple pleasure of looking at old cars, and, in the case of the gentleman on the left, listening to an engine running.

But for the main purpose of this site, in prime position is the SLK Guide, which has been updated to cover, oddly enough, a non-SLK, the SLC. It looks the same as the SLK, drives the same, has no V8 option and is more expensive. So a testing time for sales staff.

Then there are the two Forces books, the first being Both Sides of the Force, a story of an idyllic and naive chap who joined the police at a time when corruption was endemic. The way he tried to avoid its dangers, and failed, is described in a way that has earned 4.5 stars on Kindle. There is a follow-up book, A Tour of Forces, intended to cash in of the first’s popularity, about the balance of his career, spent in various counties.

NOW PUBLISHED: A new version of the Illustrated Guide to the Rover V8 Engine. The earlier version  covered the RV8 as fitted to TVRs. After a number of requests I’ve decided to extend the book to make it more useful for other vehicles it was fitted to. There are wiring diagrams of specific systems in Classic Range Rovers.

There are a number of car-related articles that will interest anyone keen on cars and motor-racing.

Please visit Old Blugger for a view on life from the standpoint of someone who has always been somewhat bemused by ‘things’ going on around him. Comments welcomed, as are explanations as to life, my immediate environs and the little bit left to me.

I hope you enjoy your stay on Writewheel.uk and, even better, buy some books.
