Ryan ZumMallen first fell in love with cars from behind a video game controller. After he mastered the "Need for Speed" and "Gran Turismo" franchises, a bright red Ford Mustang GT convertible stoked that fire through high school and college. Today, he applies his training as a hard-news journalist to help buyers find the vehicle that will keep their own flame alive. He's also fascinated with how cars bring people together, and his 2019 nonfiction book Slow Car Fast explores the vibrant world of millennial car culture through that lens.
