1982 me thanks you for all you have done to make Best Selling Cars Blog what it is today.

Circa 1982, 4 year-old me was shocked to see how dirty some car tail lights were. I developed a mild case of OCD and started cleaning the dirtiest ones… Freaky I know. In the process I learnt how to read by deciphering the car makes next to the tail lights, with the first words I could recognise being Peugeot, Renault and Citroen as this was in Cannes, France.

A lifelong passion was born.

Fast forward to October 2010 when I created Best Selling Cars Blog and it was the start of an adventure that hasn’t stopped amazing me. Never would I have imagined that so many of you would be interested in this blog, coming from absolutely every corner of the planet and sending me a continuous flow of encouragement, praise and information. And I thought this deserved a special place on this blog.

This Thank You page lists out and acknowledges all of you who have helped make this blog what it is right now with your contributions. Please keep them coming! I always mention each and every one of you every time you send me some data that I am able to feature on this site, but I thought I would set up a special page to recognise each of you.

I will keep updating the page each time some you guys send some new data. But PLEASE NOTE: I am still going through the hundreds of emails I have received from you all since the creation of this blog to ensure I include everyone so please forgive me if your name is (not yet) there, I am still working on making the list as complete as possible.

So once again thank you everyone for your contributions, your insights and your visits. This has been an amazing experience and I look forward to continuing to improve it with you. I work every day to make this blog better and I hope you will continue to enjoy it. If you have data you want to share, simply comment on here and enter your email address when prompted (it won’t appear publicly) so I can get in touch with you.
