Alex’s childhood dream was to fight Bruce Lee and win. Being unable to throw a punch, he decided to go to college. After finding out a little too late that economics was not really his thing, Alex decided to write about cars for a living. It might not be as exciting as being an accountant, but it’s quite a thrilling job. When he’s not writing for autoevolution.com, Alex enjoys long walks on the beach, dynamite fishing and playing his banjo.

A world designed for automobiles instead of people would have wider streets, larger dining rooms, fewer stairs to climb and no smelly, dangerous subway stations" - P. J. O'Rourke
