Woodward Eve

The day had finally come.  Six months in the making. As I lay in bed on the eve of what would be one of the greatest outdoor car shows I've ever seen, I marveled at how aware I had become of everything auto.  My long chestnut hair was perfumed with exhaust as I lay my... Continue Reading →

Corvettes and Cousins

Car love runs in families and mine is no different. Growing up in the same northern Illinois region, my cousin Dan and I were worlds apart.  He, quite a few years my senior, hung out with my older brothers.  Including the little sister happened on occasion.  Dan's daughter was my playmate since our ages were...

10 days in February

I must confess...I love cars.  Old, new, running, rusted in a field, or withering away in a barn in Kentucky, I'm drawn.  Maybe it comes from growing up in the Chicago area and attending the Chicago Auto Show so many times.  Maybe it's the four brothers who provided a showroom of jalopies and treasures on the...
