Samuel Spencer

Sam is currently a fourth year Journalism major at the University of Cincinnati. He has been a lot technician at a Ford dealership since 2007, where he has logged hours behind the wheel of a wide assortment of cars. He is a particular fan of British cars, but doesn't mind a bit of American muscle when it is done right. He currently drives a Miata, which he got after serving time in a horrid old Geo Prizm. When his life isn't completely consumed by the automotive world, he likes to spend his time doing photography and playing music.
