Plus, our Hollywood doppelgangers, our hidden talents and (while we're being honest) all the things we're terrible at.

You read our new-car reviews and trust us to keep you updated on all things auto news, but have you ever wondered about the brilliant minds behind the poetry and prose on Caradvice.com.au? (Just say yes.)

With a couple of new faces joining the team and the Melbourne staff left listless and deskbound by the latest lockdown, we thought now might be the perfect time to put our content crew in the hot seat.

No stone was left unturned in our quest to unearth each other's true selves – from Rob's painfully trendy music taste (he is Culture Editor, after all), to Justin's never-ending list of cars he's owned, to Bailey's highly relatable penchant for discount beer.

And, of course, we asked everyone to dish on the best car they've ever driven – in their entirely biased, deeply subjective opinion, that is.

So grab a drink, settle in and get to know the people behind the wheel (or desk, or camera). Proof we have a life outside of cars... well, some of us do.

Oh and hey, because we're obsessed with tables and charts, be sure to check out some at the bottom of this story!

PS. Kez wins for best joke.
