Chris Edwards has loved everything cars since he was rocking Pampers and a pacifier.  In his formative years, Chris spent much of his time soaking up one car magazine to the next ranging from Car & Driver to Truckin.  Since college, Chris has written a number of automotive articles.  His primary goal has been to entertain the reader while providing richly informative and accurate pieces.  As a product of the 90’s, many of Chris’s favorite cars are from this decade, although he appreciates all automotive eras.
