Meet Sajeev Mehta

On the same day TTAC published Sajeev Mehta's less than flattering review of the Lucerne, a Buick spinmeister emailed the site to offer a cross-Canada jaunt in said sedan. To their credit, GM's Zen division (Beyond Precision?) weren't daunted by the Divine Mr. M's mauling of their quiet tuned car. The offer stood. So Sajeev gathered-up his wits– and his Mom– and flew off to sample the Strongbad-like millieu known as a GM junket. Sajeev's willingness to confront his, um, confrontees illustrates the writer's spirit of adventure and his dedication to the truth. That's one of the key reasons the Houston-based writer has quickly become one of TTAC's core reviewers. The other is… style. Time to meet and greet the man who rolls in American splendor.

    Sajeev: I've been interested in trying my hand at automotive journalism for some time, and hearing how you got your start in fascinating. This coupled with what zeFrank said about good ideas has pushed me a bit closer to giving this a try. I really dug your review of the camry Nice call on the Veyron too......

    I am new here to TTAC's. I am personally aquainted with Sajeev, his Mom and Brother. Also met Dad once. His Mom bought a car from me. I can tell you that Sajeev is one particular person when it comes to cars. You should see his 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII. Awesome. I even arranged for his Buick Lucerne that he test drove. Even tho the Buick did not get glowing reviews, I know, in his opinion that is just the way he sees it. BTW, great interview Sajeev. Warreneaux

    I'm with you, buddy. And just to prove it in my ever so modest way, I've just deleted my bookmarks to AUTOBLOG and to the Detroit News' Auto Insider. I've got one main auto site in my bookmarks, and it is YOURS. Good Luck.
