William Clavey

Formerly a technical writer, William has always aspired of one day becoming an automotive journalist. Fed up of occupying jobs that no longer stimulated him, he opened up a blog and started writing about his passion: cars. Over time, his blog, Clavey’s Corner, grew and became recognized across the country by important people in the industry. Over a period of two years, William Clavey has driven over 100 different cars.

He then started writing for Jalopnik, a controversial American car website, where he became known internationally for his humoristic and censor-free writing style. When William was offered the opportunity to work at The Car Guide, he immediately accepted. For him, working with the people that inspired him to get into this profession in the first place is a real honor.
