Gary Grant is in this month’s spotlight because some of you may want to know more about him when considering his win-win-win offer. And, if it helps you decide to accept, it’s good for Autowriters.com 🙂
Gary Grant literally climbed his way out of an auto industry pit to create his own business in the auto media world. No doubt he was fated to be a “car guy” from the time he was just a few months old and his Dad, an auto racer, took him to Mosport. In his teen years he wrenched for a friend who raced Karts and made after-school money changing oil in a fast lube pit. From there it was new car dealerships for 20 years, moving to service writer and then service manager for domestic, European and Asian outlets.
A guest gig on a Toronto radio station’s call-in auto show lasted 18 months and fueled Grant’s interest in the the auto world’s media niche. He became an auto blogger in 2004 and began to learn Word Press. In 2005 he launched www.thegarageblog.com with fresh content provided by a rotating cast of writers from the U.S. and Canada. Based on that success he began creating web sites for others. Samples of the work he has done can be found at http://blairvalleymedia.com/web-design/. In addition to thegarageblog.com he operates www.drivenwheels.com.
By 2009 Grant was sufficiently confident in his web media skills to leave the dealership world and rely on his web-know how, writing ability, and his photography talents. In 2010 he began snapping for the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series and Castrol Canadian Touring Car teams. He is a member of IMPA and ARPA.
