If for no-one else, today signals the start of a fairly momentous month for me, for it marks the 30th anniversary of me becoming a motoring journalist. It also therefore means it’s been three decades since Autocar magazine diverted me from a life charging headlong towards ignominy, ruin and oblivion. I was broke but spending money I didn’t have, as if I were still working in the city and not a failed law student with nothing in the diary save watching telly by day and drinking by night.
