DT E-i-C Vince: Let’s face it, you can have the best blog idea in the world, but without regular meaningful content, the idea is worthless. With that in mind, a while back I put out a call for new writers to help fill these pages with interesting, fun, and well priced classic cars — and the results were nothing less than phenomenal. A number of folks rose to the occasion and I’d like to congratulate the folks that made the leap. Here they are in no particular order:
First up is Matt, who is a Peugeot 405 owner, a real live car nut, a southerner, and a prolific writer. He is also a self-proclaimed “bottom-feeder of the classic car market, spends half of his time buying cars, half of his time retrieving them, and the remaining third on keeping them on the road.”
Next up is Glenn, who has a keen eye for well priced classics, vintage oddballs, and seems to prefer Italian things. When not receiving complaints of “distracted by cars…again” from
his wife, Glenn can be found in the kitchen whipping up exotic cuisine
and nourishing nosh.
Cory has been a regular around this website for years, and was a constant source for well priced tips until I convinced him to join the dark side and write stories. He is trying to finish off his project 1995 Mercedes E36 wagon
and figure out what to do with his hoard of rare w124 parts.
Al has a first name that nobody can actually pronounce, but is love of cheap and interesting domestic cars (along with the occasional BMW or Saab) makes him fit right in around here. Additionally, Al is an accomplished life long auto
enthusiast. This affliction landed him in Detroit for several years working as
an engineer in the auto industry. When he is not busy scanning Daily Turismo,
Craigslist or one of the other fine car sites for great finds he works as an
engineer on baggage tractors, or hones his tolerance for BS by landlording.
Last, but not least, is Adam, who has fantastic taste in European cars and a way with words. A refugee from the frozen north who loves running and watersports,
Adam can be found looking for the next slow car to drive fast when he
has access to electronics he hasn’t immersed in liquids. He is an analog
kid not, a digital man.
Please welcome the new writers, reward them when they get things right, and throw shoes at your computer monitor when they get things wrong.
