Associate Editor Send a tip Born and raised in Southeastern, Michigan Craig was steeped in cars and mechanics from childhood, growing up around tractors, motorcycles and engines. He feels as much at home with a wrench or welding gun in his hand as he does behind the wheel or in front of a keyboard. When he’s not providing AutoGuide with USDA prime content he’s out in the garage restoring his 1936 Ford V8 sedan. Some say he’s a changeling.
