Jeffrey N. Ross is a Detroit native now living in Florida, and he has spent his most of his life in, around and under cars: from a childhood filled with Matchbox cars to bloodied knuckles as an ASE-certified mechanic and, since 2006, as an automotive journalist. Some of his car-related highlights include learning how to shift a manual transmission on a first-generation Bronco, driving his '77 Trans Am in the Inaugural Woodward Dream Cruise and tackling tracks such as Daytona International Speedway and Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
