About Scott Parker (3 Articles)
I grew up dreaming of owning a muscle car, walking car shows with my father, and reading car magazines from Car & Driver to Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords. I couldn’t think of anything better than making a profession out of writing about cars. So I went to Rutgers University to pursue a Journalism degree, and purchased my first muscle car – a ‘99 Mustang GT. I spent years planning modifications. Following a series of freelance, contract, and part-time gigs I got a job working as Associate Editor at GM High-Tech Performance and was promoted to Editor four years later. In my free time I worked with sister publication Muscle Mustangs & Fast Fords, which helped turn my GT into the open track day workhorse and daily driver of my dreams. And it’s been downhill ever since. I’ve been fortunate to attend multiple road racing schools, turn laps at some amazing tracks, do countless burnouts, lifted a tire or two, owned and been involved in some cool builds, and worked with some talented people. Following a stint as Online Editor and Associate Content Director at Source Interlink Media, I founded Middle Out Media to author books, produce content for a variety of magazines and websites, and provide communication and marketing services. I currently daily drive a 2008 Trailblazer SS, and have a Pro Touring ’83 Regal project in the works.
