What is the coolest thing about working at Edmunds?

The culture at Edmunds is fun and vibrant. The fact we are a company that actually employs people who love cars, makes videos of car burnouts, and gathers people with widely varied interests and talents make this an obscenely awesome place to work.

Tell us about your favorite Edmunds memory?

I was at my first Edmunds happy hour, having only been employed for 4 days. I was partaking in libations while the Editorial and Video team played a clip from their 2012 Ford Mustang Boss 302 review. In it, they are flogging the car without mercy on the track and car burnouts come so often one might think that is how you are supposed to drive a Boss 302. It was in that was the moment that I knew I had come to work for the right company.

What do you like to do for fun?

I build, restore, and race cars nearly every spare moment I have. Sharing this time with friends and family, helping to plan their builds, and sharing in the joy and knuckle busting work is my favorite pastime.

Tell us about your first car:

My first car was a 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle with a 462 cubic inch V8 engine that was way too much car for any 16 year old. It was hands down the fastest car at my school and got me into trouble more time than I can recall. I took my wife on our first date in this car and I want to bring home my kid from the hospital in it. I still have it and have upgraded nearly every component on the car and you can bank on the fact it's packing way more power than a decade ago.

Tell us about what you currently drive:

Since I love the stylings of 60s muscle cars, my daily driver is a 1969 Chevrolet Nova. Since a stock 43 year old car is not the best commuter car in the world, I have updated it with modern suspension, Wilwood disc brakes all around, electronic fuel injection, and a 6 speed double overdrive transmission for economy. I drive it everywhere I can and flog it on the racetrack every chance I get!
