Illustration for article titled Which British Car Journalist Has The Best Name?
CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Some people read British car magazines for their outstanding gloss photo spreads, their access to forbidden-fruit hot hatchbacks, and their breathless reviews of the Jaguar X-Type. The proper reason is, of course, for the names.


Jethro Bovingdon. Harry Metcalfe. Ollie Marriage. Dickie Meaden. David Lillywhite. They're all absolutely fantastic. The question is - which one has the most absurdly British name?

My personal vote goes to EVO's fellow sideburn enthusiast Henry Catchpole, which sounds like the kind of name you'd hear at a Isambard Kingdom Brunel Appreciation Society convention.


Who's your pick?
