Born in 1951 and living in Suffolk, Paul is now retired after working in the computer industry for most of his career. Although he has a PhD in experimental Nuclear Physics, Paul is the black sheep of the family. His father and two sons are "proper" engineers. He has inherited his family's practical abilities and a love for all things mechanical, and maintains his classic cars himself. Paul is passionate about classic vehicles, owning two MGs and a Porsche. His main interest is in the 1949 MG TC he bought in 1967 and which he has rebuilt more than once. Paul's academic background allows him to research and understand complex problems. In contrast, he can present his findings to others in a simple and interesting way. Writing popular articles for classic car magazines, Paul has also given talks to groups of car enthusiasts on a variety of subjects.
