Founder, Editor-in-Chief
Hi! I founded Automoblog.net in May of 2006. I'm an avid sports car and supercar enthusiast. My favorite cars include the Audi R8, Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 VT, and Koenigsegg CCX. I think the Ferrari 360 Spider is still one of the most beautiful cars in existence. For “normal” cars, I tend to lean towards imports - Nissan, Audi, and of course the Italians. I'm in love with my Pearl Yellow (don't judge) 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and plan to get around 550 HP to the rear wheels one day. I'm also a world traveler and have been backpacking Europe since March 2012, writing about cars along the way

Sponsored Video: Will Audi Dominate Le Mans Yet Again in 2015?

I suppose it was the year 2000 that Audi began their domination of the epic 24 Hours of Le Mans. They won it with the incredible R8 LMP, and continued for three years in a row. Bentley won in 2003, then Audi came back for five years in a row – two with the same […]

Tell Your Car’s Story with a New Social Network: DripThat

There’s definitely no shortage of social networks out there as each tries to capture a bit of the content creation and sharing. When it comes to social image sharing, I tend to get a little bit confused. You can pin something on Pinterest, tweet it on Twitter, post it to Facebook, snap it on Snapchat, […]

A Free Tire Inspection and Some Tips for Tire Safety Month

A Free Tire Inspection and Some Tips for Tire Safety Month

So, May is “Tire Safety Month.” It may sound like an artificial holiday, mostly because it totally is, but at least you’re not guilted into buying flowers and chocolates and greeting cards that’ll either go straight into the trash or held onto out of obligation. Instead, you’re subtley reminded that you need to ask Abe […]

We consider it our responsibility over here at Automoblog.net to keep you up to date on all the latest and greatest automotive technology, and I think we do a pretty damn good job.

There’s no doubt – things have changed. And the new Aston Martin DBX concept car is indisputable proof. Take a closer look and see for yourself. […]

Take a look at any of the world’s modern supercars and you’ll find some of the most amazing feats of engineering ever to grace a patch of paved asphalt. Cars like the Pagani Zonda and the McLaren F1 make regular sports cars look like children’s play things. But how did it all get started? We […]

Wings & Wheels – The Best UK Motoring Event You’ve Never Heard Of

When it comes to car shows and events in the UK, a few may pop into your head pretty quickly. Goodwood, Silverstone, Autosport International…in fact we’ve personally covered Goodwood Festival of Speed for the past couple years as well as Silverstone Classic in 2013, among others. But there are plenty of lesser-known motoring events in […]

Father-Son Duo Crank Out Cool Car Tees

Sometimes a day doesn’t go by that you don’t hear about some guy making car T-shirts and selling them online. Finding cool unique tees that you actually want to wear, however, is a different story.

Sponsored: The Citroen C4 Cactus – Another Quirky Euro Hatch the US Won’t See

It’s true – Europe tends to get far more variations of cars than America does. Sometimes it’s a good thing and sometimes I really wish a certain model were available in the US. Now, we don’t even have Citroen cars available in the States (anymore), but we still talk about them quite a lot. After […]

What Will Self-Driving Cars be Like When They Finally Hit the Road? (Infographic)

As self-driving cars inch their way closer and closer to reality, drivers are forced to step back and contemplate how they would actually affect our lives on the road. Industry consultancy firm IHS carried out a study in January that predicts self-driving cars will hit the consumer market by 2025. Will they solve all the […]

Sponsored Video: What David REALLY Saw

Remember that viral video a while back called “David After Dentist” where the kid in the backseat is all hopped up on sedatives from the dentist and doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not? Pretty funny stuff. There’s been loads of spin-off videos and parodies of it done, some of which are ridiculous and some […]
