You already know that you can find my writing other places than in TTAC, (or, if you’re just waking up from a two-decade coma, Bicycles Today) but did you know that my brother, the infamous “Bark M”, is setting up shop elsewhere as well?
From the AER debacle at New Jersey Motorsports Park two weeks ago, we have a story of motor-swapped endurance contenders who all managed to fall apart before the checkered flag. But wait, there’s more! Bark makes his long-awaited Jalopnik debut talking about car dealers and social media. The story has 239 comments as of this writing and it’s well on the way to 20,000 reads today. You can bet that Travis and the rest of the Jalop crew will be giving Bark plenty of chances to shine over there in the future.
Although his article has been mostly well-received, there have been a few people who aren’t on the Bark train to Harlem:
Well, you can’t please all the people all the time, you know. Watching Bark arrive as a Jalopnik writer reminds me that I’ve become one of the older faces in this business. Has it really been nearly eight years since I first appeared on that site, as Murilee Martin’s driving instructor? Yes, it has. Time flies, when you’re having fun. And when you aren’t. And when you’re just tired. But also when you’re having fun. And from that day at Sears Point to the events to come in the near future, much of this has been more fun than I deserve.
