Adventures in Automotive Nerdery is made possible by car nerds like you.
Which is to say, I rely on the kindness of friends and strangers (aka new friends) to share their awesome cars with me so that I can
live out my most reckless fantasies write about them. This usually involves meeting up with me, and maybe another gearhead or two with their cars; spending a couple of hours kicking tires, taking a spin (including letting me drive a bit if you’re okay with it), talking about your pride and joy, and taking pictures; and then being cool with me heaping praise on your car in my awkward fashion for the world to see.
I’m based in the SF Bay Area, so obviously it’s easiest if you are too, or are at least within an easy day’s drive or willing to travel to the area for a shot at internet obscurity. I generally prefer to write about cars in original/as original/unmodified condition, and a little patina is no problem – we’re all about attainable dreams here, not perfection.
Below is the list of cars I’m currently looking for. I’ll be updating the list frequently, so check back often, tell a friend, post to your favorite Renault LeCar forum, etc. If you see something on the list that’s in your garage (driveway, back forty, whatever), use the contact form at the bottom of the page to get in touch.
