Peter Wherrett dead at 72...

Lovely tribute from, Car Advice's Anthony Crawford to Peter Wherrett- one of the people I idolised when I was a youngster.

What made Torque such compulsory viewing was Peter’s utterly candid approach to what he thought of a car. He wasn’t afraid to call a lemon a lemon. On the other hand, he was always quick to point out improvements by a manufacturer.

It was this kind of straight talking that made Peter Wherrett a household name in Australia, and gave the program the high level of credibility it thoroughly deserved.
