Another character from my burgeoning auto enthusiast youth has passed. RIP Brock Yates.


Yates along with David E. Davis Jr formed the two poles that Car & Driver rotated around during their truly great years in the '70s and early '80s. Yate's affected good ol' boyism was the perfect foil for Davis's affected snobbery. Over those years some great stories were written and ideas about what made cars and driving something to enjoy were formed.

Grew up reading his stuff in my dad's C&D's. Sad news.
