Sometimes finding someones home is tricky when your sat-nav tells you that you have arrived but the house number is nowhere to be seen.

This was just the situation I found myself in when visiting this weeks guest Sam Cooney. Lucky enough for me he noticed my erratic lost u-turn style of driving and gave me a call to reassure me that I hadn’t wandered into a bad part of Takapuna but had indeed reached my destination.
I soon find myself in yet another garage with a Corrado that has its tail in the air and wheels tucked to one side by a pair of coil over adjustment spanners. A very nice Motor bike and a very special white MK3 Golf with a story to tell.


The first time I met Sam, who give the camera a smile while his mates try to figure out why his intercooler is wonky.

Roger Baillie
Brought up in a world of Mini's, road trips, rallying and tinkering it is unsurprising that among my passions, since I can remember, cars have been something very special to me. The way they look, the way they smell and especially the way the sound. This passion has grown over the years from a spectator's seat at Formula 1 and WRC events to active participation in events such as the Cannonball Run NZ and Stance Off Events. My current love affair is with a slightly tuned Mk4 Golf GTI which brings me nothing but joy on the road. This love for driving and cars has led me start a Podcast dedicated to my love of driving called Drive Life NZ where I hope to share my story while exploring the varied stories of other enthusiasts. Dispelling the myths surrounding car people and celebrating our diversity.
