Frankly I was astonished that it had even heard of me!
I wondered just how clever this AI language BOT, ChatGPT (Generative Pre-Trained Transformer) actually is – so I asked it a series of questions including: “Who is the BrownCarGuy?” Much to my surprise, here’s what it answered.
Car Journalism is Doomed – watch or read this before you consider becoming a Motoring Journo or Content Creator. The clock is ticking on how long before car culture gets canceled by woke anti-motorists!
Met up with good buddy and legendary Indian Motoring Journalist and prolific author, Adil Jal Darukhanawala, earlier this evening, on a rare visit to London – but what was he doing here? Find out in this video.
Check out my latest video podcast, this time with veteran motoring journalist, Martin Gurdon and in association with GoClassics magazine. He writes about cars for the London Evening Standard, Daily Telegraph and Spectator Online website as well as other titles. He’s also a judge for the Motor Trader Awards. He’s also an author with nine books to his credit including the Bluffer’s Guide to Cars and Hen & The Art of Chicken Maintenance! I ask him about that, and also his first car, which was a Honda Z600, which he bought for 5 pence from his dad. These days he rocks around in a 1989 Skoda 120L saloon, that’s the Estelle.
Have we reached ‘peak’ CR-V, or was that back with the second gen?
We owned a second-generation Honda CR-V for over decade and there must be a very good reason we kept it that long. Although there isn’t any single cause for keeping it that I can recall, potentially it was more a case of… well there was no reason to replace it. And that’s from someone that drove the latest and newest family SUVs throughout that tenure.
‘Cars in Space’ or ‘Dumb & Dumber on Wheels’ – pick your title, but whatever you do, DON’T miss it!
So last weekend I saw the latest instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise – Fast and Furious 9- Cars in Space. I don’t think it’s really called that, in fact I think it’s The Fast Saga, but it should be called Cars in Space. So have I just let slip a spoiler? Probably not if you’ve seen the trailer or if you’ve actually seen the movie of course.
But in any case – I’ll give you a big warning right now, this is one of those rare occasions I will tell you NOT to read on or watch the embedded video, if you haven’t seen the movie or even the trailer (which mostly tells you everything anyway), because there are going to be huge spoilers ahead. On the other hand if you have seen it, or just don’t care, then here’s what I thought of the newest car movie out, which you can actually see now that – Thank God – the cinemas are open again.
