Updated List of Ed’s Car History

It has been a while since I made a list of the cars that I have owned. Here is an updated list. I like to keep this current so that if the cars sell to someone new they can contact me. Great to see how far they travel. 2007 Lamborghini LP640 Coupe – Grigio Telesto/Nero […]

Some of my most epic exotic car road trips

I feel like you haven’t really owned a car until you take it on an epic road trip. Here is a list of some of the best drives that I have taken in my cars over the years: NY to LA in the Audi S4 on MTV South Georgia in a Ford GT Gallardo to […]

Alex Roy’s thoughts on the best Cannonball Car

Yesterday on The Drive, Alex Roy posted some of his thoughts on the best car for a modern day Cannonball. He explores the knee-jerk desire of all car guys to blast across the country in something reminiscent of the girls in the Countach or Yate/Gurney in the Daytona. The thinking man’s choice is clearly very […]

Some photos from a visit with Bleacher Report

Amir Ebrahimi, Christopher Rivera, and Bobby Shively recently came over to interview me for a segment about theĀ 2013 Cannonball RecordĀ for Bleacher Report. To close out the day, they asked if I could get all of the cars together for a photo shoot. It was getting quite dark but I thought them came out great. Here […]

Caffeine & Octane: January 2016

The unseasonably warm weather of the holidays did not persist to the first C&O of the season. It was a very chilly morning but there were some very cool cars in attendance. Great to see and catch up with Rutledge Wood from Top Gear US and good to see all of the familiar faces. The […]

The Cockpits of Cannonball

The photo of the cockpit of the CL55 that we used for the 2013 NY to LA record is one of the most like/shared/favorited photos I have ever put on the internet. The suite of modifications that it takes to ready a car for a cross country trek at speed is something to behold. Recently, […]

Caffeine & Octane: December 2015

Since I missed last month’s C&O for The 2904, I was eager to get back to the event this month. It was a chilly morning but the turnout was fantastic. I had Megan and Graham bring the S55 that was still filthy from its run cross the country and I drove the CL. Graham prefers […]
