Winter 2016 Contributors

Jack Baruth
is a former professional BMX racer and cycling journalist who made the switch to cars 15 years ago. He has stood on podiums around the globe; he has also been disciplined for excessive contact or aggression in five different racing series. Born in Brooklyn, New York, he has lived all over the East Coast, and he currently lives in Powell, Ohio, with his wife, his 7-year-old son and a collection of obscure Japanese guitars. He makes his Hagerty debut this issue with our cover story on the first 50 years of Camaro. Read it on page 28.

Andrew Trahan
grew up in Detroit in a family of car nuts, and he spent his free time as a kid in the pits rather than the bullpen. Machines of all types fuel his passion, and he has a deeply rooted emotional connection to things that move, which began at birth and only accelerated from there. As a photographer, he sees cars as much more than metal, glass and rubber. Instead, they are a performance art, and he strives to find a car's soul every time out. For our cover story, he captured the souls of two Camaros past and present.

Marc Urbano
calls the Motor City home. Originally from Pennsylvania, Marc and his family moved to suburban Detroit so he could chase his dreams of photographing all things automobile. Long ago he sold a 1972 BMW 2002 tii — a transaction he still regrets — so he's always on the hunt for the perfect car to replace it. When he's not chasing cars, however, Marc's wife and two teenagers occupy his time. For this issue, he followed Davin Reckow to Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, to capture a slingshot drag car in motion.

Larry Webster
is new to Hagerty and joins the company as Vice President of Content, where he will oversee all print and web strategy. Webster is a longtime auto writer who ditched an engineering career for Car and Driver in 1994. Since then, he’s test driven a Formula 1 car, raced in the Baja 500, served as Automotive Editor at Popular Mechanics and, most recently, was Editor-in-Chief of Road & Track. A July cross-country sprint in a vintage Mazda RX-7 proves the perfect introduction, and you'll find it on page 46.
