I'm one of those lucky stiffs blessed with a curiosity about cars and a wife who graciously indulges it.
When not writing, I can generally be found messing with hot rods, vans, or vintage iron. I find so doing so gives me a natural advantage. I not only understand the enthusiast mindset, I understand what makes a vehicle tick. I gain a deeper appreciation for collaboration and form strong bonds with mechanics, upholsterers, metal fabricators, and other talented people who are able to execute a vision.
It’s a lot like creating a great campaign, really. It’s not something you can do alone. Getting everyone to embrace the objective and adhere to the concept is what matters. To me, there’s no better feeling in the world than throwing down with a group of talented people on a project, whether it’s a car or a marketing campaign.
I live for projects. And I'm really looking forward to getting busy on my 27 Ford Model Tall T coupe project. But I'd rather be throwing down on your project.
Hey, it’s not like these cars of mine pay for themselves.
