Peter Corn

Peter Corn joined MotorBiscuit as an Autos Writer in 2020 and brings his quippiest Southern drawl to our table. Having, in his words, “helped” rebuild his dad’s 1959 MGA as a small child, Peter grew up loving vintage cars and trucks, adding motorcycles and all things 4×4 as he went.

Peter earned a Bachelor of Archeology and Creative Writing from the University of Alabama and has since melded his love of driving with storytelling. His voice, full of pleasantries and witticisms, can be enjoyed in The Gentleman Racer, The Vintagent, Gear Patrol, Iron & Air Magazine, and Classic Car Club Magazine.

Peter is a co-founder of both The Colloquial Magazine and The Fire Escape, the official podcast of The Colloquial. In an effort to increase his abilities in “ramping anything with wheels,” Peter has taken track training from Classic Car Club Manhattan and attended Rally School at Monticello Motor Club, where he was coached by eight-time Performance Rally motorsport champion Chris Duplessis.

On a lucky day, we get to hear Peter tell the story of his first car, a jewel of a 1958 Ford Fairlane, into which he dumped more time and money than made sense, but he has no regrets.

The Mercedes Alphavan is King of the Custom Camper Vans

Until recently, camper vans and RVs have often occupied either grandma or weird-cousin Eddie spot in both the motoring and the camping world.

2021 Acura TLX Is Sneaky Good

In 2015, the Acura TL and the TSX, both models which enjoyed praise in their time, joined forces to make the Acura TLX.

Are Jeeps America’s Best Sports Car? Enzo Ferrari Thought So

The Jeep firmly rooted itself not only in American automotive circles but throughout American culture across the board. “Jeep” represents the literal manufacturer as much as it does the general concept of 4×4 off-road vehicles, at this point. How did Jeep become synonymous with sport utility vehicles?  Jeep’s role in WWII certainly set the stage …
