Robbie Clark

Robbie Clark grew up trying to steal his Dad’s 1975 Harley-Davidson Superglide FXE. But since it was an AMF, it hardly ever started. And if it did, he wouldn’t have been able to get very far. He has a few vehicles under his belt, including an ill-fated 1991 Mazda MX-5 Miata, which he promptly wrapped around a telephone pole after “borrowing” it from his Dad two weeks into having his license. While living in Alaska, he drove a 1984 Subaru GL with nearly half a million miles. It started with a screwdriver and was called “The Miracle,” because that’s what it was if it got anywhere. Since then he’s been the sole owner of a 2000 model Jeep Wrangler that has seen several cross-country tours, all sorts of back roads and more fun than should be allowed in an SUV.

Robbie is a freelance writer and editor in Lexington, Kentucky, where he has covered Ford, GM and Toyota production facilities. He saw the first US-made Lexus roll off the production line in 2015. Along with automobiles, Robbie has covered Kentucky basketball, bourbon and a variety of other topics.

Recently Robbie had to add a 2013 Toyota Highlander to his fleet to accommodate a growing family that includes a wife, son, daughter and dog. He also picked up a Midnight Blue Vespa LX 150ie. It’s definitely more reliable than his dad’s old Harley.
