Legendary automotive journalist David E. Davis, Jr. passed away earlier this week at the age of 80. Davis (known to his countless friends and colleagues simply as "David E.") was a prolific writer, with published bits of wit and wisdom dating back over fifty years.
David E. spent a lengthy tenure atop the masthead of Car and Driver, and the magazine has put together a collection of his most memorable pieces published in the 1960s, '70s and '80s. Davis had a passion for driving "great cars on great roads," and stories like his April, 1968 C/D review of the BMW 2002 showcase his influence. In writing about the 2002, Davis brought BMW front and center within the mind of the American automotive enthusiast.
A total of nine stories are offered in C/D's collection, available as either text or downloadable magazine-layout PDFs. Head over to Car and Driver's website to read the lot.
