About the author

Born in 1964, Nigel Knight has been trading cars for more than 20 years. His fascination with cars started as a young boy cleaning his father’s Jaguar XJ6, Aston Martin DB6 and other models. He bought his first car to restore and sell in the late 1980s while studying for a mechanical motoring diploma, and quickly discovered that cars he had cleaned were easy to sell. He started selling full time in 1994 having completed a BA (Hons) in (architectural) Interior Design, which gave him a deeper insight into finishes. Nigel lives with his family in Hampshire.
