Keith Adams, editor, @Keith_Adams

Keith Adams'I'm addicted to buying cars, and you'll often find me scouring the used car classified ads or pounding the dealers for my next moneypit - I mean, bargain. I've had my name on the logbooks of more than 250 now, which is probably not a good thing - although I've been driving longer than I care to admit. I'm driven by the desire to see people get a fair deal when buying their cars - and here on Parkers, I'm able to realise that goal.'

Keith WR Jones, managing editor, @keithwrjones 

Keith WR Jones'Being a dyed-in-the-wool car geek who pores over car specification data for fun puts me in the perfect position to give sound advice to both new and used car buyers alike. Whether you’re after an urban-friendly city car, a family-focused SUV, a luxurious limousine or something significantly sportier, my experiences – combined with those of the Parkers team – ensure that you’ll have access to considered, accurate and helpful guidance when it comes to choosing your next car.'

Murray Scullion, finance editor, @mscullion2

Murray Scullion'Helping buyers choose the right car is what we do here. We test cars in all types of circumstances, for different lengths of time, in various locations and conditions. As Finance Editor, I can determine whether a car is good value or not. After all, the cost of the car is ultimately the most important factor when choosing a car for most people.'

CJ Hubbard, editor vans and pickups, @ir_427

CJ Hubbard'After 10 years of messing about with cars I thought it was time to do something useful: write about vehicles with a purpose in life. For once I got the timing right, for today’s vans and pickups are increasingly available with much the same tech as modern cars, and are often more relaxing to drive, too. The tension between setting the highest standards in these developing areas while continuing to meet most buyers’ primary concerns about costs and payload capacity is a challenge commercial vehicle makers are meeting head on, even while the line between business and lifestyle use becomes ever more blurred.'

Richard Kilpatrick, planning manager, @rtkdrives

Richard Kilpatrick‘How cars fit into life, society, identity and self-esteem has always fascinated me; working with Parkers has expanded that understanding quite dramatically too. I've gone from tiny 2CVs to huge American V8s in the search for the perfect car for me - and now, it's all about helping you find the perfect car for you, via used cars, advice and your weekly newsletters! ’

Adam Binnie, new cars editor, @adambcars 

Adam Binnie'I’m not sure I really have a favourite type of car. But the ones I hate giving back the most are those that make driving itself an event. I like those that make you consider taking a longer route to work, reveal a hidden value, and contain something exceptional in the ordinary. Most of all I like writing about them - so you can experience them too.'

Steve 'Percy' Lawman, senior product content manager

Percy Lawman'I get the chance to drive and assess nearly every car the team reviews, which really helps when answering reader enquiries. I loved the Fast Ford era and during the '80s owned several RSs including a first generation Ford Escort ‘Burton’ RS2000, a Sierra RS Cosworth, Mk1 and Mk2 Escort RS Turbos and a Sierra Sapphire RS Cosworth. In 1993 I nearly bought an RS500.'

Tom Wiltshire, staff writer, @mctreckmeister

Tim Pollard'I've been reading and dreaming about cars for as long as I can remember, so it's a privilege to be allowed to drive and review all the latest models. My favourites are those that do all the important stuff well, but still have their own character.
A car is only good or bad depending on its competition - which is why I think it's vital to thoroughly research all the options, giving you the confidence that you're buying the right car for your needs.'

Lawrence Cheung, senior staff writer, @FWMotoring

Lawrence Cheung'Driving various cars that put a smile on my face is one of the best perks in this job. You can tell if one's particularly good as my punctuality suffers and I've had to refill the tank at the petrol station more times than normal. Modern motors have never been as complicated as they are today, so we aim to strip through all the fuss and PR spin to tell you how it really is. Finding unnecessarily complicated and distracting gadgets on cars is a pet peeve.'

Tim Pollard, editorial director, @TimPollardCars

Tim Pollard'Is there any such thing as a bad car nowadays? Real stinkers are few and far between, as quality standards have risen across the board. Yet there’s still a gulf between the merely average and the truly exceptional - and identifying great new vehicles is what drives me and the Parkers team every day. There’s no greater thrill in this job than finding a car which rips up the established order of things to set new class standards. And as a father of two, I always have an eye out for cars combining practicality, value and fun.'

James Dennison, head of automotive video, @JDennisonCars

James Dennison'My passion for the all-things-four-wheels stretches as far back as I can remember. After graduating from ramming model cars into the skirting boards of my parents’ house, I had stints as a Product Expert at Audi and BMW, gaining a strong understanding of exactly what customers look for in their motors. That’s not to say there’s a one-size-fits all formula in this respect, though. Everyone has differing requirements from their cars and I love nothing more than helping potential buyers find their perfect motor.'
