We’ve been hoping to grown the team here in The Garage for some time now, but it’s been a bit of a challenge finding someone who is the right fit. Someone who, like The Garys has somewhat of a background in the auto industry and is a total gearhead to boot. Someone who likes to have a bit of fun with a topic, but has the knowledge to back his or her opinions up. So we’ve gone and done it. We’ve brought in a real live jurnalist type who has actully been published and stuff. Aw crap, that means he’s gunna judge owr writin.
That’s right, Mike is a real, live journalist type, with an actual degree in journalism. He’s been writing for a living for the last 10 years, and now he’s here in The Garage to write for free! Well, let’s hope it’s not free for long, or I’m gonna go broke. One thing that has been sorely missing around here is some focus on the biz side of cars. Even though I work in the retail side of the industry, I have little or no knowledge of the big business end of the industry. That is Mike’s specialty, and working in the Detroit area, he has access to some of the industry’s big wheels. If we’re lucky, Mike might even bring us the odd interview. Plans are already in the works for The Garage to make an all out assault on next year’s Toronto and Detroit auto shows. Business stuff gets a little boring at times, so Mike will also be flexing his fingers and publishing the odd road test or news story.
Welcome aboard Mike and try not to knock over that oil drum in the corner!
