Hi, My name is Adam C and I am 20 years old but Vauxford is my preferred username. I am an avid car spotter and car enthusiast! I joined Wikipedia/Wikimedia Commons on 20th December 2016.

My hobby is photographing high quality photos of vehicles seen both on the road or at shows. (My favourites are everyday cars, especially between late 70s, 80s and late 90s) as well the newest models and facelifts of cars. I also cover a bit of architecture as well (Chapels, Landmarks etc).

My Automobile Library as of 30th October 2018. Now mostly filled with folders full of car brochures and in the draws.

I also own a library dedicated to the subjects with all the indispensable reference books that been used to create hundred of Wikipedia articles about the history of the motor car. From 13th April 2018, I have started to collect vehicle brochures and magazines.
