Blog

Hello, my name is Leena and this is my auto blog. My husband is a real petrol head whereas I used to struggle to tell one end of a car from the other. However, all that changed around the time of my husbands 50th birthday. I decided that I wanted to buy him some things for his car to celebrate his big day but I didn't have a clue what I should get him.

My husband loved his gifts and since then I have been learning more and more about cars.
