There are few other cars that had such a brief lifespan and such a lasting impact. The DeLorean was only originally in production for less than two years. However, in that brief period it gained cult status and became an unlikely symbol for fictional time travel thanks to the Back To The Future trilogy. Now, more than 30 years later, the car that was immortalized in 1985’s Back to the Future is to be brought back into limited production – next year.Read More

The holidays should be a break away from work and stress; a time to relax with family and friends. Unfortunately, many of us have had our lives affected by road accidents at this time of the year.
The reason all the Government bodies and motor websites are advising road safety, is because the statistics prove that accidents are always increased around the holidays. You only have to turn on the TV or radio to hear warnings from police and other community bodies in the lead-up to the holidays to know that it is a dangerous time on our roads.
It’s no wonder, we’re rushing around, shopping for food and presents – which we’ve left to the last minute again – we’re catching up with old friends, partying with work colleagues, we’re often too busy concentrating on enjoying this time of the year to be safe. Many of us might be travelling long distances to stay with family or friends. With more people on the roads and most maybe being a bit careless, the need to be cautious on the roads is of paramount importance.
Although we are a an Accident Repair Group, we don’t want you or any of your loved ones to become just another statistic this year. We want you to make it home this season.
So when you’re driving this season, please me mindful of our road safety tips:Read More
