Eric is an automotive columnist and author who has written for the Detroit News and Free Press, Investors Business Daily, The American Spectator, National Review, The Chicago Tribune and Wall Street Journal.
His books include “Road Hogs” (2011) and “Automotive Atrocities” (2004). He’d write another – if there was any money in it!
Toys includes a Carousel Red 1976 Pontiac Trans-Am with a street/strip 455 V-8 under the hood – as well as a restored 1976 Kawasaki Kz900 with a 1015 cc big bore kit, a restored ’75 Kaw S1 Triple, a mostly stock ’03 Kawasaki ZRX1200R and a beater ’00 Kawasaki KL250 Super Sherpa. He loves them all but rides the ’83 Honda Silverwing Interstate the most.
Previous wheels include: 1964 Corvair Monza coupe, ’73 VW Thing, ’69 VW Squareback and rusted-out ’78 Camaro with Gabriel hi-Jacker air shocks, peeling Keystone Classic mags and glasspack exhaust. I miss the Omacar!
Eric’s been full-time freelance since the late ’90s, lives in the boonies of rural Southwest Virginia with his wife and various animals, won’t have a cell phone or get near an airport until the TSA’s Submission Training goes away. He believes everyone ought to be able to drive whatever they want to drive – not what the government dictates they have to drive. Air bags should be optional – and freedom standard equipment.
