Crazy hot rodder only adds to the dysfunctional staff of straight-line freaks.
June 18, 2015
Gotham City – In a move that promises to melt the Internet, Dennis Pittsenbarger has joined the staff at Cars Illustrated magazine as a designated new car test driver. Pittsenbarger’s rich history of modifying cars and on-camera talent will serve the classic automotive journalist brand well.
“My plan is to continue the legacy that the original Cars Illustrated staff set out in the mid-80s,” said Pittsenbarger. “We need a reliable source that tells our readers how fast cars are in a straight line directly from the factory. This is America! We do burnouts and blow stuff up!”
Pittsenbarger’s charming personality and instant knowledge of all things automotive have been on international display, first as the voice of Hot Rod Radio, then as the star of Discovery’s “Highway to Sell” with multiple, high profile automotive spokesperson roles in between.
Pittsenbarger joins members of the original Cars Illustrated staff – Neil VanOppre, Editor, and Tony DeFeo, Contributing Editor. Together with Tech Editor Tim Stockwell and Competition Editor Anthony DiPietro, they give a perspective on high performance automobiles that can’t be matched.
Beginning in late-June, Cars Illustrated magazine will release a series of new car drag tests featuring Pittsenbarger, complete with tips and tricks for maximizing straight-line performance. Pittsenbarger has a dedicated video crew and supporting technicians who will share their testing and other antics on the newly launched Cars Illustrated YouTube channel.
