Anthony has been obsessed with automobiles since before he could walk. This love for cars has since inspired a love for writing about cars, and today his byline can be found at The Car Connection, CarsDirect, iSeeCars, and more. When he's not penning an article, he's probably out driving his Miata or combing a local junkyard.
