You’re cruising down some two-lane byway on a Saturday afternoon in your recently restored 1969 Camaro RS/SS. It’s a factory restoration, not numbers-matching but date-code-correct. You’re proud of having your Camaro in the same condition as it rolled off the Van Nuys, California assembly line, but wish that it had come with air conditioning. Sweat rolling down your forehead, you downshi

What Happens When You Treat a Classic Car... Like a Car?

The Driven would like to welcome a new member to our team, Mr. Zachary Suell. His work may also be found at aspiringcarguy. Like the rest of us here, Zach is an incurable car fanatic who writes and photographs his automotive muse. We hope you will enjoy his work as much as we do.
