LITERARY ASSET

Peter Shead, Oatlands, NSW

What a perfect piece of writing, subtly conveying, in a brief summary, a film and the pertinent essence of a person (Bruce Almighty, Redline, July).

One of the finest examples of many lovely compositions we’ve had the joy of reading in Wheels since the publication began.

Good writing, whether the joyful bull of ‘Quints’, the gentle but passionate work of Robinson, the punching delight of Ponchard, the scything cut of Carey, the humour of Stahl, or those long past writings like the captivating sagas of Jeff Carter and his Porsche, all keep me reading Wheels.

Sometimes I’m disappointed when unnecessary profanities creep in, and sometimes the sheer flood of new cars and SUVs becomes boring, but pieces like Ben Oliver’s sweep the negatives away.
