If peculiar cars are your thing (yep, my hand is up) let me introduce you to a fab website Below the Radar which showcases the weird and wonderful of the motoring world. The site is bursting with info on often forgotten oddities, concepts, prototypes and small scale production cars such as the Fuji Cabin and the Mohs Safarikar. Both of which are totally bonkers! Take a look, you’ll be amazed. I guarantee you’ll be down the obscure car rabbit hole for days!

Since Classic Retro Modern magazine hit the shelves 18 months ago, I’ve been an avid reader and devoted fan. So imagine my delight at being asked to contribute!
