About the author

Simon Nixon has been a professional automobile valeter for the last 13 years. He has always been fascinated by cars, especially new ones, so much so that he was often late for school, as stopped to admire the gleaming cars at the local dealership on the way. Watching the staff remove dust and finger prints from the shiny new paint work, is how his obsession with keeping cars in perfect condition began. Simon now owns his own valeting company, satisfying his passion for perfection – a passion which is just as strong today as it was back then.
