About Scott Parker (3 Articles)
<p>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. </p> <p>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.</p>
