About Author: Robert Swartz

Grew up in McKeesport, PA, a steel town on the Monongehela River southeast of Pittsburgh, where my Great-Grandfather began selling Model Ts in 1917. Added a Chrysler-Plymouth dealership in 1933, dropped Ford in 1938, and left the business in 1967, when I was 2 and too young to protest. I'm a child of the CC era, and I've been lucky enough to own them in the US, Europe and Asia, from a 78 Estate Wagon here in New York to a DS23 Pallas in Amsterdam and a Saab 900 convertible in Hong Kong. I've been settled in Brooklyn for a while, and I spend my days working in advertising and dreaming of a garage.
