Car Guy Confessions E39

With Jeff Smith, Steve Strope and Cam Benty

Presented by ARP

Automotive Wordsmith Elana Scherr tells the Car Guys how she bought a classic Mopar muscle car, and started rebuilding the engine in her living room before she could even drive. This passion has led to a career as an automotive journalist with bylines in Hot Rod Magazine, Roadkill, Road & Track, Hemmings and now the Senior Feature Editor of Car and Driver.

Along the way, her and her husband Tom have collected unique cars including Dick Landy’s iconic drag racing ramp truck being restored and even a few movie cars.

Check out some of her builds along with her husband Tom on their YouTube channel Challengeher.
