SHIFTING GEARS IN THE NEW YEAR

I don't know about you, but 2017 brought a lot of change - both good and bad - into my life.

Of course, I'm a glass-half-full kind of guy, and it's the good I plan to focus on as I move into the new year. Already 2018 promises to be full of opportunity and excitement, not the least of which is this blog I am launching (TA-DAH!) and the book and podcast I have in the works.

If you know me, you know it's a big deal for this old dog to be learning these new tricks. While advancements in automotive technology feel second-nature to me, social media and communicating through a computer are not my thing. I'm all about spending time in person, chatting over cars & coffee or on a long drive with the top down on a brilliant summer's day.

Perhaps fittingly, it's all my memories of those good times spent one-on-one with friends and fellow automobile enthusiasts that led me to undertake these new ventures. I have so many stories, and have been blessed with a lifetime of experience doing what I love most.

The recent passing of one of my very best friends reminded me that none of us has forever on this strange planet. And while I certainly intend to stick around long enough to become one of those old men who annoys everyone around them by spouting car trivia and telling the same stories over and over (and over) again, I figured now is the time to start sharing those stories in earnest, and in a format I hope will entertain.

And don't worry - while I'm shifting gears a bit, I'm not going on sabbatical or into early retirement. No way. I'm still driving fast, taking chances, and working with clients old and new in search of that perfect vehicle.

I'm grateful for your business, your friendship, and your patience with my inevitable typos and missteps as I move into this new venture.

Here's to the road ahead!

All my best,
Barry
