Al Navarro is a co-founder of Mint Advertising, an independent advertising agency in New Jersey. He also drives a Caterham Superlight R, so don't front.
I apologize in advance that this first in a series is on the long side. I use the extra words to explain some things here and there, including the overall format I'd like these reviews to take. Future posts will be shorter.
Regular Jalopnik readers should already know me from my trail of Caterham parts, or perhaps the infamous Slut Machine QOTD. But if you don't, my name is Al Navarro and I've been a commenter and occasional guest poster here since about May 2006. My day job is in advertising; I co-own a small agency in the middle of nowhere New Jersey. We do a little TV here and there and have a major auto parts distributor as a client, but no car makers or dealers on the roster right now. I have worked on car clients in the past, including some award-winning stuff for the Mercedes-Benz M-Class launch years ago.
