SimonsCarSpots.com is pedalled relentlessly by Simon Ford, an avid car spotter from Letchworth Hertfordshire who bestows Twitter with his daily presence via @sf4d74. Simon is a keen amateur photographer who gets a shiver down his spine when he sees cars that are rare, interesting, or discontinued. If you love candid shots of cars in their natural habitat, look no further and peruse Simon’s wonderful library of car snaps!
Simon’s car spots photos website all came about when Vel Satis obsessive, car road test reviewer, car finder and budding motoring writer Oliver Hammond (@renaultvelsatis on Twitter), felt that Simon should be given his own place to shine, so Simon and Olly got together and the rest is history.
As well as publishing wonderful car spots, Simon and Oliver also publish regular car road test reviews on the site, putting a press car through its paces every week.
When SimonsCarSpots.com started, all the cars spotted in photos on SimonsCarSpots.com were snapped by Simon himself. But since then, the interest in the site has been phenomenal and many motoring journalists and car fanatics have been keen to contribute their own photos to SimonsCarSpots.com. As a result, Simon runs a weekly Sunday Guest Spotters’ night 21:00 GMT on Twitter. *unless otherwise stated*
The site has attracted interest from the Guild of Motoring Writers due to its success being largely down to social media.
With 500,000 hits per month becoming the norm, SimonsCarSpots.com with its wealth of photos and car reviews, is set to continue its success story long into the future.
