Murray Scullion Q&A
What was your biggest news story?
Classic cars becoming MOT-exempt was a biggie. Never have I written something that’s divided so much opinion.
What’s the best car you’ve ever driven?
Best is a difficult word isn’t it? For a car - a mode of transport - something to get from A to B in, it’s hard to look past something modern such as a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla. My favourite, the most special to me, was my old NA MX-5 that I bought with my student overdraft. Objectively, the most special was a Jaguar XJ220. I love the story behind it, the fact that it sounds a bit like a washing machine and despite it being more than 30 years old it’s still massive by today’s standards.
What will the car industry look like in 20 years?
I think it will have changed significantly, but it’ll still be recognisable. Brits after a new car will continue to have an unquenchable thirst for premium German manufacturers, but the South Koreans will have a much larger share of the market. Tesla will still be kicking around, and reasonably priced Chinese manufacturers will feature heavily in the bestselling cars lists.
