Cameron Aubernon

Writer

Since launching her professional writing career in March of 2010 as an independent fashion blogger, Cameron Aubernon has written for a handful of online and print publications on a wide variety of subjects, including expat issues, fashion, music, and, of course, the automotive industry. She was even the editor-in-chief of a short-lived online lifestyle publication, where she reviewed luxury cars and interviewed fellow automotive enthusiasts.

A graduate of The Evergreen State College Class of 2005 with a bachelor's in liberal arts, Aubernon took a left turn from fashion writing into the automotive realm when she asked a fellow writer via Facebook if she could write for their site. Following an internship, stints with a couple of hyper-local online publications, and a move to Seattle, she made her then-biggest impact with The Truth About Cars, writing full-time for the publication from 2013 to 2015.

Patrick Rall

Writer

Before he was old enough to walk, his dad was taking him to various types of racing events, from local drag racing to the Daytona 500. He owned a repair shop and had a variety of performance cars when Patrick was young, but by the time he was 16, he was ready to build him his first drag car – a 1983 Dodge Mirada that ran low 12s. He spent 10 years traveling around the country, racing with his dad by my side. While they live in different areas of the country, his dad still drag races at 80 years old in the car that he built when Patrick was 16 while he races other vehicles, including my 2017 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat and my 1972 Dodge Demon 340.

Although Patrick went to college for accounting, his time in his dad’s shop growing up allowed himthe knowledge to spend time working as a mechanic before getting my accounting degree, at which point he worked in the office of a dealership group. While he was working in the accounting world, he continued racing and taking pictures of cars at the track. Over time, he began showing off those pictures online and that led to my writing.

Ten years ago, he left the accounting world to become a full-time automotive writer and he is living proof that if you love what you do, you will never “work” a day in your life. He loves covering the automotive industry and everything involved with the job. He was fortunate to turn my love of the automotive world into a hobby that led to an exciting career, with his past of working as a mechanic and as an accountant in the automotive world providing him with a unique perspective of the industry.

His experience drag racing for more than 20 years coupled with a newfound interest in road racing over the past decade allows him to push performance cars to their limit, while his role as a horse stable manager gives him vast experience towing and hauling with all of the newest trucks on the market today.

Being based on Detroit, he never misses the North American International Auto Show, the Woodward Dream Cruise and Roadkill Nights, along with spending plenty of time raising hell on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue with the best muscle car crowd in the world.

Derek Shiekhi's father raised him on cars. As a boy, Derek accompanied his dad as he bought classics such as post-WWII GM trucks and early Ford Mustang convertibles.

After loving cars for years and getting a bachelor's degree in Business Management, Derek decided to get an associate degree in journalism. His networking put him in contact with the editor of the Austin-American Statesman newspaper, who hired him to write freelance about automotive culture and events in Austin, Texas in 2013. One particular story led to him getting a certificate for learning the foundations of road racing.

While watching TV with his parents one fateful evening, he saw a commercial that changed his life. In it, Jeep touted the Wrangler as the Texas Auto Writers Association's "SUV of Texas." Derek knew he had to join the organization if he was going to advance as an automotive writer. He joined the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) in 2014 and was fortunate to meet several nice people who connected him to the representatives of several automakers and the people who could give him access to press vehicles (the first one he ever got the keys to was a Lexus LX 570). He's now a regular at TAWA's two main events: the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall.

Over the past several years, Derek has learned how to drive off-road in various four-wheel-drive SUVs (he even camped out for two nights in a Land Rover), and driven around various tracks in hot hatches, muscle cars, and exotics. Several of his pieces, including his article about the 2015 Ford F-150 being crowned TAWA's 2014 "Truck of Texas" and his review of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, have won awards in TAWA's annual Excellence in Craft Competition. In addition to writing for a variety of Internet Brands sites, including JK-Forum.com and Ford-Trucks.com, Derek also contributes to other outlets. He started There Will Be Cars on Instagram and Facebook to get even more automotive content out to fellow enthusiasts.

Ian Wright is a regular contributor to CorvetteForum, Jaguar Forums and 6SpeedOnline, among other auto sites. His obsession with cars started young and has left him stranded miles off-road in Land Rovers, being lost far from home in hot hatches, going sideways in rallycross cars, being propelled forward in supercars and, more sensibly, standing in fields staring at classic cars. His first job was as a mechanic and then trained as a driving instructor before going into media production. The automotive itch never left though and he realized writing about cars is his true calling. However, that doesn’t stop him from also hosting the Both Hand Drive podcast.
