Jack snagged his dream internship in 2019, helping out around the traps at Street Machine. Editor Telfo snapped him up after he finished his media degree later that year, and since then heâ€™s done a bit of everything. Jackâ€™s turned his hand to writing, filming and web management, plus a brief stint as a WhichCar TV hand model.When heâ€™s not on task around WhichCar, youâ€™ll find him in the shed cursing one of his latest projects. Current targets include a 1980 ZJ Fairlane, a 1986 Hilux 4x4, and a Suzuki TS185 trail bike. Heâ€™s got a passion for otherwise-unloved metal, so donâ€™t get him started on first-gen Magnas or KF Lasers!
