He writes on a wide diversity of subjects which range from marque histories which include Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Citroën, Fiat, Hillman, Rover and Volkswagen to more universal topics such as austerity motoring, commercial vehicles, bubblecars and three-wheelers, motor homes, London taxicabs and British police cars.
In addition to writing books, Malcolm is a regular contributor to periodicals specialising in the annals of transport and motoring history, thus his features appear in The Automobile and Archive Magazine as well as a number of journals
dedicated to particular makes of vehicle. His is also the editor of the quarterly journal published the Society of Automotive Historians in Britain
A member of the Northern Group of Motoring Writers as well as the Guild of Motoring Writers, Malcolm compiles the motoring pages for several magazines and newspapers and is therefore much involved with the day-to-day issues and developments within the global motor industry.
Along with his writing and journalism, photography is another of the author’s skills and his work has been widely published.
