Welcome to AutoTribute, where we pay tribute to the good cars — old or new; American, Asian or European; sports car or mainstream. We understand that there are only 24 hours in a day and a near infinite number of blogs, news sites, and people to follow. To spare you the overload, we set out to create a platform to brings you the news that matter. Our goal is to provide our readers with a portal to keep up to date, discuss, share and learn about the developments in the Automotive industry and marketplace. A quick break-down of what we do:

As a young website, AutoTribute was just getting started when the global financial crisis hit. Our team was there when the news was happening, providing detailed analysis on the severely impacted North American automotive landscape, particularly on the fall and re-emergence of GM and Chrysler. This experience has provided us with valuable insight on developing AutoTribute into a respected automotive website.
As the founder of AutoTribute, Kwame is by definition not a gear head. No, his appreciation focuses mainly on the trends in the automotive industry. Initially just a visual observer, he finally put his time to good use when he created AutoTribute with a vision that it would be a place where people came to chat about the best cars and about the industry at large. His analysis of the industry can often be found in AutoTribute’s editorial pieces, where he holds nothing back.
But this is not to say Kwame has no appreciation for cars. In fact, having been behind the wheel of his fair share of vehicles, and having elicited the opinions of many other car owners, he has come to realize that not everyone likes the same cars he does. More importantly, he has come to realize that good cars come in different designs, sizes and specifications. Although he appreciates a BMW 3-Series for its sporty and athletic demeanor, he nonetheless understands why the Toyota Camry has been such a big sales success.
Kwame’s background includes an MBA from a prestigious schools in the frozen North where he specialized in Finance and Accounting. But as his work on AutoTribute shows, he is no — in the wise words of industry veteran Bob Lutz — Bean Counter. Whether he ends up working for a bank, an accounting firm or car manufacturer, his eyes will always be on the good cars of the world.
Few people know the man behind the mask, but one thing is certain — he loves cars. More specifically, Speedy lavishes in sports cars or — in general — cars that handle better than one would think they could. An avid auto enthusiast, he spends his spare time obsessing over the latest car news, vehicle reviews and automotive editorials. This is complimented by his strong interest in the latest tech-features, particularly those pertaining to vehicle comfort, safety and — of course – performance. This makes him one of the most informed contributors at AutoTribute.
As one of the most technically-oriented writers on AutoTribute, Speedy covers the performance and technology side of the automotive world. His editorials are full of such relevant tidbits.
