Elvis' interest in 3-wheelers began in 1990 when, prior to going to university, his motorcycle was stolen and he purchased his first Reliant Robin. At the time Reliant 3-wheelers could be driven on a motorcycle licence. It was this that started his interest in 3-wheeled vehicles and more specifically in the Reliant Motor Company.
In 2000, Elvis set up www.3-wheelers.com which is now possibly the largest web site on 3-wheeled cars on the Internet. To date it has had over 2.6 million hits.
Elvis started writing in 2005 with his first book being, How to restore Reliant Regal that was heavily based upon a Reliant Supervan III that he was restoring at the time. An updated/ revised edition of this book was released in November 2017. In addition to these, Elvis has
written six other books with the latest one being The Reliant Scimitar which is a companion to his previous book, The Reliant Motor Company. Both books feature a foreword by HRH The Princess Royal.
In 2016, Elvis co-founded the Reliant Motor Club at www.reliant.website with fellow Reliant enthusiast Mark Cropper. Elvis is the Chairman, Webmaster and Club Historian.
Elvis has also assisted numerous TV programs and advertisements with information on Reliant or indeed found vehicles for them. This also includes the infamous Top Gear episode with the Reliant Robin constantly being rolled by Jeremy Clarkson. Along with TV he has also helped numerous newspapers, magazines and radio stations worldwide with either Reliant related information or photographs. Elvis states one of the more memorable request was from BBC America to write a biography of the Reliant van for the extras section for a DVD of the TV series, Only Fools and Horses. In addition to the biography he also took photographs that were used on the packaging and the cover of one of the DVDs.
From 2006 to 2014, he also organised the Reliant Gathering in Tamworth, Staffordshire on which once a year Reliant vehicles would assemble as part of the town’s Heritage day. In 2015 he received a "BE Tamworth” award (in the form of a BE Tamworth pin badge) by the Mayor of Tamworth, Cllr Richard Kingstone for his interest in all things Reliant and promoting his home town.
Whilst Elvis' daily runner these days is a "modern" 4-wheeler, there have also been a number of 3-wheelers as well although Elvis' main aim is building a comprehensive Reliant archive for which he currently has over 1,500 items.
Elvis works in the IT sector and lives in Tamworth (UK) the former home of the Reliant Motor Company. He is married with a son.
