Kurt has been fascinated by anything with wheels and a motor for a long time. Growing up, he spent his spare time turning wrenches and pumping gas in the family garage, back when hand tools were used to tune cars.

These days, he spends his time as an automotive writer and a self proclaimed "Cro-Magnon Renaissance Man".
