Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.


      • The ‘67 Olds 88 & 98 (IMO) were two of the Division’s most attractive front-end designs of the entire lifespan of Oldsmobile… and were also two of the most expensive to produce and complicated to manufacture; leading to a much more simple line of 1968 products.
