My Name is Brandon Flannery

I've been writing car features for over 15 years and I love every minute of it.

In 2001 I moved to California on the promise of a job interview with Car Kulture Deluxe magazine. That title was sold and continues today.

We then started Traditional Rod & Kulture Illustrated right after that and are approaching our 50th issue.

In 2004 I became a Features Editor for the Goodguys Rod & Custom and their Gazette. I spent the next 10 years covering everything in hot rodding and I still freelance for them today.

In 2015 I grew weary of the travel and went to work as a copywriter for COMP Cams in Memphis.

I also write for Xceleration Media's, various titles (Street Rod Life, Drag Racing Scene, Power & Performance News, etc.) as well as The American Tri-Five magazine.

Here's a link to my portfolio:

I find great joy in listening to somebody talk about their car, writing it up in a concise manner, and them loving it. It's why I get out of bed in the morning. I want to hear more.


People work hard to create a car. For the history to be lost, or worse, for somebody else to get the credit, is a disservice to the hobby and the car. To history.

Ever seen an interesting car in a swap meet with no answers?

With proper documentation a car can go from "I don't know, it's funny looking," to "This is a historical part of X shop's history," as was the case with our Corvette cover car. Having the history significantly increased the car's selling price on eBay. Proper documentation aids in value.


Like art, a painting without a known or documented history is just an interesting image. However, knowledge of the origins can be the difference in trash and treasure.

Add value, prevent deception, and preserve history.

Please allow me to write the story of your car.
