What’s a Spannerhead?
span·ner noun \ˈspa-nər\
chiefly British : a wrench that has a hole, projection, or hook at one or both ends of the head for engaging with a corresponding device on the object that is to be turned.
A spannerhead, then, would be someone with their head full of spanners. Or at least, someone with spanners and the things they service—cars—on the brain.
What do you write about?
Almost exclusively cars and the automotive world in general. Occasionally our mechanical geekiness will get the better of us and we’ll feel compelled to discuss things not strictly automotive, but still engineering-related. Frequent topics include opining on the latest automotive news, discussions of design and styling (especially since our editor-in-chief is a designer by degree and profession) and tributes to classic and interesting cars.
How long have you been around?
Our first post was in late June 2011.
How often do you post?
Usually 3-4 times a week, more if we feel particularly inspired or have had a busy “car week.”

What makes Spannerhead distinctive?
Our featured series, for one. More than just a means to provide a ready set of topics for our editors, our series help shape the site’s content by giving insight into our unique viewpoint on cars.
That post doesn’t sound like you wrote it. What’s up?
From time to time, we offer sponsors a chance to insert links and post articles containing content they feel might be relevant to our readers. This, in turn, helps the site stay alive and kicking, and our contributors engaged.
