But something has stirred here at PH Towers, and it's not Garlick's 3rd cup of tea of the morning. Nope, it's our latest big idea and, just like Dave 'the kid' Cameron's big society, it's only going to work if you get involved.
Well not all of you obviously, because with 3.5 million (plus) 'unique users' visiting PistonHeads every month we'd be a bit pushed to cope between tea breaks. (You'll be pleased to hear we're cracking through those Sunday Service biccies.)
It's easy to participate. You send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your car described in the subject line as 'Make/Model/Year' (e.g. Vauxhall/Nova 1.2/1991 - carefully choosing the other car in your garage, obviously) and a sentence or two of text describing your pride and joy.
The idea is that we accumulate a pool of PHers into which we can dip our editorial quill, and from which will flow a plentiful spring of homepage articles ranging from one-off profiles to serialised running reports - a bit like the PH Fleet Update articles we do already. The best bit? If we like what you're offering, we might even write your story for you...
What is a candidate for the PH Carpool?
Interesting, fast, thirsty, and prestigious 'proper' machinery, mainly. Or to put it another way - hyper cars, super cars, sports cars, GT cars, racing cars, luxury cars, track cars, and even some of those TVR cars.
N.B. Vauxhall Novas will be instantly rejected, unless yours happened to win the Lombard RAC, or something...
