Here’s a quick Q&A with Paul Hadley, Motor Verso founder:

Q: What inspired you to start the blog?

A: Motor Verso was started simply from a love and appreciation of cars standpoint. I would spend a lot of my time and energy discussing car topics, so why not do it online?

Q: How do you see Motor Verso developing in the future?

A: Over time we are building a large portfolio of car reviews, we aim to develop this to be as detailed and depth as possible. Each month we have a large audience of people that we assist in helping to decide on there next car purchase and we plan to help many more in the future.

We’ve also reached out to Gavin to have a quick Q&A about the PetrolBlog:

Q: What inspired you to start the blog?

A: I was inspired by my love of the forgotten, the mundane and the cars nobody else loves. Hardly anyone was writing about these cars back in 2010.

Q: How do you see PetrolBlog developing in the future?
