...behind the wheel of a car? You were probably excited, slightly nervous, but definitely eager. That’s just how we feel, here at Car-Link, as we set to work on our very first blog. Firsts are interesting things. So many are open to debate. For example, the first windscreen wipers may have followed an idea from photographer Gladstone Adams as he drove home to Geordieland having watched his beloved Newcastle lose the 1908 FA Cup Final (some things never change). He patented his design three years later.
The Highway Code first saw the light of day as a 1931 booklet, costing a whole penny. The original roadside petrol pumps started in 1905 in St Louis and took eight years to make it to the UK. The world’s first driving test operated in Paris, under the Police Ordinance of August 1893, a full four decades before they became compulsory in our fair land.
Enough of firsts, we’re actually much more interested in our blog becoming a regular and useful feature of your life. As a car dealer based in Bournemouth, we’ll include industry and model news and reviews, as well as upcoming deals and offers for quality used cars in Christchurch and Bournemouth, indeed throughout Dorset and the surrounding area.
For over forty years, we’ve used our expertise to locate and then offer only the highest quality, low mileage, full service history, HPI checked vehicles. We usually have around fifty super choices in stock, from classic Rovers or Morris Oxfords, to stylish Mercedes and stunning BMWs. Add Porsche, Land Rover and so many more, and you’ll appreciate a level of choice you’ll struggle to match far outside Dorset itself.
Finally, our blog is really your blog, so please let us know questions you’d like answered, information we should provide and feedback on our services. Incidentally, we’re also on both Facebook and Twitter and would really appreciate your company
