Renny never intended to be an automotive writer. He started out in PhysEd, moved to agriculture and wound up as parts and service manager for an automotive dealership. One day the editor of the local paper asked him to write a review. Renny's answer; sure, how hard can it be? Now Renny is often referred to as the engineer to human interface as he uses plain language in his reviews. Renny has two adult children, lives with his wife Alison, enjoys motorcycling and is a Motorcycle Safety instructor.
