Brock Yates 1933–2016


Recommended Posts

An innovator whose influence is present in every bit of today's automotive journalism, and even more widespread.


In the early-middle 80s, when he was doing TV commentary, I told him he should follow up Sunday Driver with Sunday Motormouth. He seemed to like the idea, but if it ever emerged, I missed it.

Sunday Driver, ​ one of his older books is a must read for auto enthusiasts. The story about the 1966 Muscle Car showdown article in Car and Driver is hilarious and shows how the manufactures cheated on the cars they gave the magazines to road test. Of course they might have learned from old Carroll himself with his first AC Cobra in the fall of 1962.
