Like any good gearhead with gasoline in their veins, Ben's affinity for cars came at a very young age. Some of his earliest memories from childhood are taking hot laps around Sonoma Raceway in a Ferrari Dino 246. The experience sparked a passion that still burns strong, which explains his particular fondness for Italian sports cars. As a hobbyist, Ben has bought maintained, repaired, and sold countless cars and appreciates all types, from classic British compact super Minis, to the latest hypercars and everything in between. This all-encompassing love of cars is evident by the ranting nature of Ben's writing on a wide variety of topics.
