“Automotive journalism suffers from a disease of sameness. Too often it’s the same guys, with the same opinions, driving the same cars, eating the same buffet shrimp. Largely, a collection of feckless, soft-dick midwesterners in jeans-and-blazer combos talking about how great the Mazda Miata is and complaining about why not enough midsize crossover SUVs have manual transmissions. Most of these people should be eaten, frankly.”
– Patrick George, former Editor in Chief of Jalopnik.com, explaining what makes Jason Torchinsky so special as he leaves the site (along with David Tracy) in order to start up something new over at The Autopian. I wish them both the very best and can’t wait to see what they come up with.
