Ken was born into a family of gearheads. His father owned a performance motorcycle shop and raced in the desert. At the same time, his mother used to chase his father with water and gas in her modified 240z. When he came of age, he was forced to crew on Nitro Hot Rods, but his heart stayed in the desert where he fell in with a bad crowd of Baja champions in garbage VWs. He restored Jeeps and old muscle to earn some clout in the automotive world, but it was never enough to satisfy the need for knowledge. That’s why he spends all his time nowadays researching, experimenting with, and talking about everything car-related in a vain effort to claim the title of “expert.” All that knowledge is boring to just hoard, so he writes as a way to share experiences and entertain the world.
