Jeff Glucker found his love for cars as a child when he felt tremendous sadness after watching Ferris Bueller\'s pal Cameron destroy a 1961 Ferrari 250 GT California. Fast forward to 2009 and Glucker co-founded Hooniverse.com, which is the go-to place for enthusiasts and lovers of all things automotive (according to him). Over the years Glucker has written for various outlets including Autoblog, NADAguides, Autobytel, Speed:Sport:Life, and a handful of others. While he may often find himself writing about new cars... his heart lies with the older ones.
