Eric Peters has been writing a column about cars since the ‘90s -- and working on them since he was a kid. He’s the author of “Automotive Atrocities: The Cars We Love to Hate” and “Road Hogs.” He has written for the Chicago Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, Investor’s Business Daily, Celebrated Living and the American Airlines in-flight magazine, as well as online platforms. He is a regular guest on various radio programs around the country. In addition to test-driving the latest cars, Eric writes about classic cars and motorcycles. He owns a bright-orange ’76 Pontiac Trans Am that has outlasted his marriage, and a number of weird old bikes, including a ’75 Kawasaki S1 250, the smallest three-cylinder two-stroke motorcycle ever mass-produced, which he restored himself. He’s a member of the International Motor Press Association and the Washington Automotive Press Association. He graduated from George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, and currently lives in the woods of rural southwestern Virginia, not far from Roanoke.
