Jeff Zurschmeide

Jeff Zurschmeide is a freelance automotive journalist who lives in Tillamook, Oregon, at the confluence of great weather, nice roads, and public acceptance of maintaining a barn full of hopelessly shot old cars. Jeff is currently obsessed with his 1955 Willys M38A1 Jeep, which he enjoys driving off-road in the Tillamook National Forest and noodling around town, but his daily driver is a C-Class Mercedes-Benz, because fast, sexy, and comfortable never goes out of style. Additionally, Jeff is the author of nine books on automotive topics. Just search his name on Amazon and you'll find them.
