    Not really a list of BLOGS is it? Of your Top 10, at least 8 are not blogs. Only SA Car Fan and Autocirca are blogs.

    Maybe different title of “Top 10 Car Websites” would be better

    Hi Dalene,

    thanks for the list. Always nice to know from where to get more car related information.
    If I may be so bold as to mention a fairly new website that a friend of mine and I have launched - - it too is car related. So far it has a lot of great tips on car insurance (useful tips and new info ), learner’s license and other useful tips and within 2-3 weeks it will have also have a car review section so that people can read what others have to say about a certain model before they buy it. We are also working on a classifieds boards so that people can list their second hand cars on the board for free.
    If you take a look and like it, then a brief mention would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks!
