Andrew Ganz, Senior Editor

Andrew has had cars in his blood since he was a toddler—literally, since he gnawed the paint off of a Hot Wheels Cadillac Seville while he was still wearing diapers. Let’s hope they didn’t use lead back then. After growing up in Dallas, Texas, Andrew earned a journalism degree from The Media School at Indiana University. He has worked in public relations for two automakers, and has served as an editor for a luxury-lifestyle print publication and several websites. An avid car shopper (and sometimes actual buyer), Andrew specializes in writing for in-market consumers. When he’s not perusing Craigslist for his next questionable car purchase, he is exploring the back roads of the Rocky Mountains.
