Emma Size isn't much of a revhead so she's a bit of an outlier in the CarsGuide team! With a background in the arts and arts writing, some would say that she ended up at CarsGuide once she realised that art school leaves the heart full and the wallet empty. But while she's not bringing a lot of car expertise to the table, her experience as a writer and semi-retired drag king have made her well-versed in the poetry of the every man; as such her key input on the CarsGuide website is in the general advice section. Her favourite car is probably just a GoGet but if she had to pick a brand it'd be Subaru. Mardi Gras is every day of the year for some!
