Benjamin Preston

Benjamin Preston holds the dubious distinction of having worked both as a writer and editor for the New York Times and as a mechanic at the Pep Boys in Fredericksburg, Va. (albeit not simultaneously). His work has taken him everywhere from Baghdad, Iraq to the Detroit auto show. He has driven across the United States more than a dozen times, several of them in competition with other drivers in a hot hurry to get to California from New York in the shortest amount of time. When he's not on the road, he can be found at home in Long Island, N.Y., either surfing or wrenching on an old car.
