I recently went for a long drive in the darling Downs region of Southern Queensland and stopped overnight in the small town of Killarney. With nothing open save the pub and newsagent, I bought a Motor magazine and sat down on the verandah of the rented cabin, watching the sunset and drinking a beer while I read the 'Feedback' section. Straightaway I noticed two letters criticising (unfairly in my opinion) two Ford motorcars that are in my garage, a Focus RS and a Mustang GT. Normally I would not be inclined to respond to such subjective criticisms, but with time on my hands, I fired off an email to the magazine's publisher in the aim of putting the record straight. Imagine my surprise when I picked up the Motor Annual 2017 a few weeks later to see my email printed in full, complete with a favourable comment from the editor. I thought I would add it to my website so that perhaps it will come up on a Google search for anyone wanting to know what its like to own these cars - straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak.
