Ex-Hollyoaks and Footballers' Wives Star Launches New Blog to Keep Car Lovers Informed

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 2, 2009) - Celebrity TV personality and actor, Gary Lucy, has embraced the world of social media by launcing an informative new online used car advice blog to keep car lovers up-to-date with the latest news, views and tips from the motoring world. Hosted as part of the vehicle advertising website he co-runs, Vehicle Text, it will be a major destination for anyone seeking to find hints and tips on buying and selling cars.

As a knowledgeable and keen car enthusiast, Gary Lucy's online motoring posts will be incredibly well-informed, featuring detailed vehicle reviews, car advertising advice and invaluable guidance on selling and buying used and new cars - priceless information in these financially treacherous times.

Vehicle Text is an innovative new vehicle trading website which allows customers to sell their new or second hand cars online via a quick, easy-to-use mobile text service for just Pounds Sterling 10. The service can also be accessed online where prospective buyers can browse the large selection of vehicles for sale.

About a year ago, Lucy had a dream - to invent an easy and affordable service where everyone could buy, sell and advertise their car. Today, his dream is a reality and Vehicle Text's novel and inexpensive service is attracting a fast-growing customer base in a fiercely competitive sell car market.

"I helped out various friends who wanted to sell their cars and were finding it stressful, expensive and hard work," commented Lucy. "I couldn't understand why there wasn't a quicker and easier way of doing it when technology is so advanced and came up with the idea of Vehicle Text. Because mobile phone technology is becoming more and more advanced, it means that we can provide a really straightforward, easy-to-use service that works."

Buyers and sellers who register with the Vehicle Text site free of charge are able to browse the numerous vehicle categories, search cars by make and model, search within a set price bracket or distance from their location, or go directly to a seller's particular site. And now customers can also access Lucy's educational and entertaining blog, containing a wealth of knowledge on the motoring world and an all-you-need-to-know guide on selling used cars.

27-year-old actor Gary Lucy, shot to fame when he played 'Kyle' in Footballers' Wives, and currently stars as PC Will Fletcher in ITV's hit drama The Bill. Known more famously as an actor, Lucy has also built up an impressive property portfolio and Vehicle Text is among the latest of his business ventures.
