As an editor, it’s literally my job to know what readers might enjoy seeing on our site and in Gear Patrol Magazine. (cough…cough…) I’m not always right, but I think overall our batting average is pretty high. Regardless, it’s most satisfying to me when a story we publish becomes surprisingly popular because that means one or more of many things: we’ve entertained, informed, struck a chord or scratched an itch.

The most popular automotive stories of 2018 speak for themselves. You, dear reader, are an educated consumer. You have great taste. You’re an adventurer. You appreciate value. Those qualities are founding principles around these parts, so not only are we humbled to have you along, we’re glad to find some solid, common ground. Thanks for reading. -NC
