About the Author

An electrical engineer, Rick Astley was born and educated in England. Tight budgets and a need to get to work meant he soon developed a thorough working knowledge of the many used British cars he owned; cars he later restored to an acceptable level of reliability.Even though his professional life took him to Canada and eventually to the USA, where he now lives, through membership of his local MG club he has maintained his interest in the British cars of his youth. Rick now works part-time as an electrical engineering consultant in the Motor City of Detroit.
