Why do we go driving in the hills? Why do we spend every last cent on that old used car in the shed? Why do we strap ourselves into rally cars and hurtle down tree-lined roads, or stand out in the cold and rain for hours on end to watch other people doing the same? Fun, excitement, friendship, passion, adventure. We do it for Any Given Reason you can think of really.
Any Given Reason is by, about and for the people who get it. Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Any Given Reason blogs about the events that happen around us, and the cars, personalities and adventures we encounter on our travels.
Any Given Reason is the work of Andrew Coles. By day Andrew works as a marketing coordinator in the retail industry, but his mind is usually occupied by his real passions for cars, car culture, motorsport, travel and photography. Any Given Reason is the creative outlet of those passions.
Andrew’s daily drive car is an NA Mazda MX5, and he is carrying out a ground up resto-mod on his first car, a 1979 Fiat X1/9. Andrew competes in supersprint, hillclimb and gymkhana events as a driver, and occasionally as a co-driver in both gravel and tarmac rally.
