Good to meet you!

Hi thanks for visiting my site. My name is Gary Fletcher and I created this site partly to keep my mind active, and partly to see if it help me make contact with other car lovers worldwide!

I’ve never owned a Ferrari and to be realistic I doubt if I ever will. If I did I would probably wreck it in no time. Back in my teens I was a young ton up kid riding a Norton dominator SS until a head-on smash with a poor guy driving an old van on the East Lancs Road ended my motorcycling days and almost my life! I was saved by a very excellent crash helmet but even so I spent six months with my leg in plaster then another six months having physiotherapy before I could walk again. I don’t want sympathy; it was my own fault and we all knew the risks. It was a different world then; the term ‘snowflake generation’ hadn’t been invented.

I now drive a specially adapted Peugeot Boxer Spirit: I’d much rather have a Testarossa but I would never fit my wheelchair in it! 30 years ago I married a wonderful lady who was my nurse at the time and since then we’ve had three lovely children all of whom I’ve tried to steer away from motorbikes. I haven’t had to try too hard, they much prefer their cars instead! Something that back in the 1960s we simply couldn’t afford which is one of the reasons why I tend to turn off when people talk about the good old days. I remember how Harold Macmillan said ‘we’ve never had it so good’; despite pandemics and crazy American presidents he could say the same again today, quite truthfully.

If you fancy getting in touch, if only to point out one of the many errors (or downright biased opinions) on this site I would love to hear from you. My email address is or you could write to me at 15 Olympic Court, Boardmans Way, Whitehills Business Park, Blackpool, Lancashire FY4 5GU. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Best wishes from Gary Fletcher
