Brandon Turkus

Brandon’s path towards the auto industry started when he was very young. As a toddler, the metro Detroit native delighted in sneaking into the garage and tweaking the wiper settings, turn signals, and HVAC levels to surprise his parents when they started the car. In 1988, he almost ran over a neighbor after he popped his dad’s Dodge Omni 024 into neutral and rolled it down the driveway.

In the years since, Brandon has grown into a certified geared with a disturbing adoration for weird and unreliable British and French cars. Before joining Internet Brands, Brandon wrote for Autoblog and Motor1.
