Peter Egan Lifting off the Throttle

I just read today in Peter Egan's "Side Glances" column in the October issue of Road and Track that he is throttling back from a monthly R&T contributor to an intermittent one. Fare thee well, Mr. Egan.

I have always enjoyed his column and he one of my inspirations to work on my own cars. If fact, I recall him noting once how he had always wanted to own a Ferrari and, as if to give himself courage, writing, "come on, how expensive could it really be to own one?" Yeah, I thought, how expensive could it really be? Humm ...

Brian- The publishers raped R&T when they moved it to Michigan and most of the old staff left. Egan was the last great thing in R&T and now it is going to be just like C&D, MT, or Automobile. John Bond would not be happy.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

R&T has just brought on-board Sam Smith in an editorial control role. Sam seems to be a bright young spark.

Brian- Not too sure. Of course my subscription runs through 2020, so guess I will find out.
