He’s written several books including: Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman, McQueen’s Machines, My First Car, and History’s Greatest Automotive Mysteries, Myths, and Rumors Revealed.
After years in the commercial real estate business Matt decided he wanted to do something in the automotive field. Many people told him he was too old to break in to the business.
Matt submitted articles to AutoWeek magazine for their Escape Roads section to see if they would be interested in his work. They purchased two out of three and a career was started.
