Chris is a Auto Blogger who specializes in Unusual stuff about cars
When I started writing this, I had pages and pages of wonderful, cute stories about how I have loved cars since I was a child and how divine inspiration led me to the creation of this page. I will spare you all that and just say the following:
I am a gearhead. I am one of those people who will spend hours reading or talking about the most inane aspects of cars, the guy whose idea of fun is a Sunday car show, and the guy who can’t take an off ramp at a speed of less than 60mph. I am a car nut.
I have an appreciation for cars that most people seem to lack. I know that the shape of a car can be rolling art, that the mechanics can be as inspiring and complicated as a Chopard watch. I take inspiration from design, and consider all great designs a form of art. I choose not to drive through life in a beige Toyota, but instead in a V12 Jaguar, screaming at the other people of the world: “Wake up. Why are you boring?”
I think plastic is for soda bottles and not a car interior, and rubber is for something else entirely. Give me a car swathed in leather and burled walnut, throw in a brutal V12 engine, and then give it a body like Salma Hayek reclining on a chaise…then my life will be complete. I want something more than ordinary, something exciting.
This is my site, and I love it. I was sick of those boring “news” automotive sites that tell me how to buy a cheaper Prius, or the ones that show me the same Ferrari repeatedly. I wanted to make a site with the best photos, of the most beautiful cars from around the web – sprinkled with some thought, intelligence, and wit.
Chris in the press:
Guest blogger on various automotive websites, media groups and online magazines.
Chris on Cars is not your normal car blog. I write about classic cars, sports cars and supercars...with no vanilla Toyota Camrys. It is a gearhead's ramblings about cars that matter. The site was launched in Jan 2008
History of the blog
I started the blog in 2008, and have a very eclectic collection of articles and photos.
Future plans for the blog
To rule the automotive blogosphere!
