Dean of Auto Journalists has Driven Off

David E. Davis, the great editor of Car and Driver and founder of Automobile magazine, died yesterday at age 80. He was one of the great personalities in the auto writing business.

Although I never met Mr Davis, I read a lot of his work. He had strong opinions, and apparently wasn't always easy to deal with, but he changed the world of automotive writing, and I'm grateful for that. In my own small way, every time I write a car column, I owe him something.
