John Mayhead is a journalist and commentator specialising in the classic and vintage car market. Well known within the industry and an experienced concours judge, he has been the UK editor of the Hagerty Price Guide for the past seven years, developing it into the country’s primary source of classic car values.
John’s love of classic motoring started with Alfa Romeos, owning, driving and restoring models of many different types. Porsches are another passion, as are early MGs and this season he will be hillclimbing his 1946 MG TC. He is also a keen historian of the pre-war racing and record-breaking scene.
His job allows him to experience some of the most exclusive cars in the world, but John is always engaged more by a fascinating story and a car that proudly displays its history rather than an expensive, immaculate restoration.
