Randy Leffingwell, Cam Ingram and Kevin Watts have launched Roads Scholars Magazine. Leffingwell serves as editor of the monthly electronic publication that introduces readers and their friends or clients to information and ideas the trio find fascinating and relevant in the automobile and car-collecting world. They say, “we’ve engaged some of the most interesting automotive writers, thinkers, and historians to do this.” During the next several months, one or two of them will be featured in each issue. Andrew Reilly and Paul Dean are guest writers in the current issue.
Publisher Gary Grant has launched “Driven Wheels.com – Canada’s Automotive Authority.” Andrew Ling, Chris Chase and Ronnie Fung are on board as contributing authors for the new venture whose purpose is, “…to provide automotive entertainment coupled with meaningful resources for Canadian automotive consumers.” Among those resources: A Preferred Dealer Program highlighting dealers their readers “would be comfortable sending their Moms to.”
And another recent launch, Legendary Car Life by Michael Knab aims “to give car enthusiasts the latest news and perspective on what’s going on in the car culture. We report on cars from every era, nationality, and racetrack. And we talk about and with the people behind them.” Check: www.legendarycarlife.com . . . An old name but a new look for its web site makes Automobilemag.com an easier read and resource for car reviews and comparisons. . . ShowBoats International may have been around but it just added a monthly auto columnist Brett Berk.
