Howard Swig is a Bay Area native and lifelong car enthusiast. Like his brother David, who has appeared here at Cars Yeah, what started out as a hobby and automotive passion turned into a career. He worked in the Technical Department at Car and Driver magazine and then went on to work in the car retail business at buying/leasing broker Cartelligent. More recently Howard shifted his focus to vintage cars at the enthusiast website and marketplace Bring a Trailer where he was brought on to launch Bring a Trailer Auctions, which is turning out to be one of the best online venues for buying and selling mostly vintage cars. Howard is an active racer, competing in the Spec Miata series with NASA and SCCA at tracks around California. He is a supporter of the vintage racing community, campaigning the likes of prewar Chryslers, postwar Fiats, Alfas and even a Mercury Comet in events around California.
