About Adam Barrera
Adam Barrera spent wide-eyed formative years enjoying the saltine breezes of Corpus Christi, Texas. Islandside treasure hunts often consisted of dragging his mother to car dealerships, where stumped salesmen scrambled for answers to questions only a five-year-old with an amateur engineering background would ask. Adam began writing an industry analysis blog at age 15, covered automotive and engineering beats for the University of Houston's Daily Cougar at 17, and graduated with a double-major in linguistics and print journalism in 2008. His mission is to reverse the commoditization of the car by empowering owner communities and championing for progress in the field.
