Road Test Editor, AutoblogZac Palmer has been an automotive journalist since his sophomore year of college where he began at Autoweek before finding his way over to Autoblog a few years later. He grew up reading and consuming as much information about cars as he could, which turned into a deep passion for driving and learning about new technology. There was never a dull car in his driveway growing up, as he learned to drive a manual transmission in a 1979 Porsche 911SC before buying a 2001 Acura Integra GS-R as his first car that he still owns today. A 2004 Porsche Boxster S has since joined the fleet, and the dangers of further expansion into weird and interesting old cars constantly loom.
