Germain Goyer

An automobile enthusiast for as long as he can remember, Germain Goyer has fond childhood memories of Sunday mornings watching Villeneuve and Schumacher and playing with Hot Wheels and Matchbox toy cars.

Nowadays, he prefers being at the wheel of his Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 1998, his Mercury Grand Marquis 1983 or his Chrysler Newport 1972, which he's nicknamed Brownie.

Though only in his early twenties, Germain worked with Autoblog Québec from its launch until its closure. He's also written for Auto V Télé and worked as a researcher for TV series Légendes de la route. He eventually began producing content for Quebecor, initially as a freelance journalist.

Since the summer of 2017, his weekly column has appeared on Autonet, Le Journal de Montréal and Le Journal de Québec. He also co-hosts a podcast about cars on QUB Radio.

The 2019 issue of The Car Guide marks the beginning of a new adventure for Germain Goyer.

Always seeking to add new qualifications to his portfolio, Germain is concurrently pursuing university education in administration.

Finally, for the past decade, Germain Goyer has been contributing to the success of family business Autos-Suggestions, which sells miniature model cars.
