M.T. Blake is a writer mainly focusing on automotive journalism who was born, raised, and currently lives in Northern California. He previously attended automotive school in an effort to become a mechanic, but near the end of a 2-1/2 year program, he left at the advice of all the back-broken mechanics in his life to go become a police officer—where he stayed for 16 years until similar injuries caught up with him! His schooling never stopped, both in his personal journey with cars, and a formal education culminating in an MBA in 2016.
As a lifelong enthusiast obsessed with everything automotive, he began writing on Gawker Media's Oppositelock.com (RIP) about overpriced diesel trucks, car reviews on vacation, outstanding cars for sale, news, and his own personal journey with those cars in his ever-growing stable of cars—currently at 30 vehicles owned and one tractor!
This website was created out of an abundance of caution after the loss of Oppositelock and DriveTribe, due to the fact nearly 80% of the articles posted on those sites are gone forever. Blake was part of the Creators Program and USA Newsroom on DriveTribe with his articles amassed over 3-million views over 143 articles. He currently writes for The Cornea Impression and for the new resurrected Opposite-Lock.
