Posted on February 1st, 2018 by Mike Atwal

Here at Trade Classics we love to put on our Mystic Meg demeanour and make our predictions between us. Because all we do is talk cars, and then some.  “I reckon the Mercedes W124 coupe will be worth a lot of money in years to come.” I’m guilty of this constant whine without taking action. […]

Posted on January 17th, 2016 by Mike Atwal

Patience. And not being able to control something completely. Two of my pet hates. Yes, hate. A powerful term, but I mean it. The human attribute dubbed patience was not programmed into my brain when I was created, nor have I developed it, nor have I learnt it. In fact, I never will. I have […]
