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 Most Iconic Vehicles From the 1960s

The 1960s were, in many ways, the years that set a precedent for so many of America’s most formative cultural moments. It was a decade that saw humanity’s ascension to the moon and the depths in which our nation could sink in the treatment of its sons and daughters during the Civil Rights movement and …

You Might be Sending Your Mercedes-Benz to the Holodeck for Repairs Now

Taking your car to the mechanic can be an extremely annoying and anxiety-ridden process. Someone doing some exploratory wrenching underneath your hood can feel like ages.

What is This Mysterious Lamborghini?

Why are all the fancy European carmakers building these track-day cars? Track cars are purpose-built for aggressive track driving. These cars are often not road-legal and sometimes kept by the manufacturer and not the owner. Most of the major marques like McLaren, Ferrari, Aston Martin, and Mercedes have all done it. Now Lamborghini is joining …

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is Great at Trash Talk

Direct and open automaker feuds are a long-standing tradition in the car world – Ferrari vs. Lamborghini, Tesla vs. Lucid, and the tale as old as time, Ford vs. Mopar. Mopar isn’t a term as widely used today as it was in the late 1960s and early 1970s, but the battle for meat-headed muscle is …

Is All-Wheel Drive Worth the Upgrade?

When we talk about cars or trucks, we always head straight for the Tim “The Toolman” Taylor grunts and want to know about power. Horsepower and torque reign supreme in the arena of “car specs people care most about,” but the driveline plays a massive role in how that power hits the road. How do …

There’s a Right and Wrong Way to Buy a Used Chevy Silverado

I think it is safe to say that the future is here. The electric car is making incredible progress, manufacturers are actually planning to build flying cars, and now Hyundai wants to make four-legged crab-like vehicles the likes of which we have never seen before. These new Hyundai concepts are almost as wild as alien robots …

The Perfect Jeep Wrangler Is 20 Years Old

Whether we are talking about lower case “j” jeeps from WWII or the upper case “J” Jeep, the name Jeep has been synonymous with off-road greatness. Although Jeep went from nickname to a full-blown car brand, the name still kinda rings as Wrangler unless otherwise specified, right? The history of the jeep is long and …

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. They are neither fun enough to drive nor rugged enough for either (pun intended) camp to be fully satisfied. Although the past few years have given rise to various boutique campers and …

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.
