Hello, my name is Graham and this is my auto blog. On this blog, I would like to concentrate on the different parts of vehicles. I will also offer advice about the best way to purchase, install and maintain a range of auto parts. I am not a professional auto mechanic but over the years, I have learnt an awful lot about this topic. My dad used to be an auto mechanic so I grew up hanging around his auto workshop, listening to him explain things as he worked on different cars. I hope you find my blog useful and entertaining.
