John Connolly Motoring Columnist

You’re here because you read Motoring in The Weekend Australian or you made a mistake and were looking for an important John Connolly. Either way, this is really the overflow section of my column, so you will be able to read the latest out of date car news, see lots of photos of cars and merry go rounds that you will never be able to afford and some travel reviews that include some of the worst bars and cafes in the world. Just what you need to help you through the day if you can’t afford the alternative. John [email protected]
