I like cars, trucks and motorcycles, so I own one of each. My only loyalty is to vehicles that are fun, useful, or otherwise great at their intended purpose. V8s welcome.

I write and edit stories about cars, and I ask a million questions along the way. I take really long road trips. And I drink too much coffee.

Mike Magrath

Mike Magrath, Features Editor
As a Features Editor, I write the words that the car nerds read. Massachusetts transplant. I like big cars, torque and pointlessly long drives.

Chris Walton

Any vehicle that's rolled into our garage, from minivan to supercar, I've tested them all. I love my job. I hate the helmet hair.

I love helping people save money buying and owning cars. Best road trip: driving coast to coast in a '96 Lexus ES 300 that only broke down once.

Mark Takahashi

Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor
I still can't believe that I get to drive and write about cars all day. Love it when I can state, "Professional driver, closed course. Do not attempt."

Dan Frio

Dan Frio, Automotive Editor
I like writing and I like cars. It's a happy marriage. I like cars that take you places. Cars that carry friends, dogs, gear. Cars you can sleep in. Cars that don't complain.

Jason Kavanagh

Jason Kavanagh, Engineering Editor
Nobody's first car should cost more than $500. True appreciation of modern cars stems from owning really, really bad, old ones.

Mike Monticello

These guys actually pay me to burn up rubber at our test track. Weekends I'm mountain biking or at track days with my turbo Miata or sportbike.

Mike Schmidt

Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager
My role at Edmunds varies daily. Vehicle evaluation, maintenance and the logistics in between, that's me. No two days are alike.

Doug Lloyd

Doug Lloyd, Senior Copy Editor
I formerly owned an Alfa Spider and a GTV-6, understandable since my first car was a Fiat Brava. Now I'm with the Germans, but I promise it's just a phase.
