A backseat driver is someone who tells you what and how to do everything, without actually doing anything. Here at the Backseat driver we're all about that. While I may not own or even have driven everything I comment on or review, I still hope you find it informative and at the very least entertaining.
Anyways, I thought I'd provide a little introduction to myself and what makes me so qualified to provide you with a little automotive literature and entertainment. By day I am a mechanical engineer, designing and mathing, and by night I'm just another guy, drooling over pictures, videos, and articles of brilliant automotive machines I may never own. I've had a passion for cars since I was very little, which has only grown and continues today. Whether I'm learning something new about the industry or a vehicle, working on my own vehicle, or cruising some twisty back road; they all bring me to my happy place. So you could say I'm a bit of a car nut and coupled with my technical knowledge as an engineer I hope to share a different perspective to the industry people might not otherwise read.
As far as blogging goes...well I don't have much experience in that area and I wouldn't call myself much of a writer either (although I did kill it on that short story on my SATs) so I figured I'd just wing it and see what happens.
My goal is to provide reviews and commentary on various aspects of the auto industry and while hopefully bringing some entertainment as well. If there's anything you want to read about feel free to comment and let me know. I hope you join me in the backseat for this wild ride, or at least long enough for it to get awkward and the windows to get foggy...
