Dan originally wrote the sample article included here for an automotive website. The article traced the development of the V-12 engine from its earliest forms through the period of its most lavish representation, to the most recent crop of examples. The article is representative of Dan's knowledge of the automotive industry and his ability to research little-known facts and background information. He was the Contributing Editor for a collector car website for two years, and has since launched two other automotive-related websites after owning several collector cars. He is in the process of developing two separate dictionaries on automotive subjects.
