The head trauma piece is something I'd expect from the New York Times, not from a magazine that feeds the fantasies of would-be racers. Racing legend Denise McCluggage calls Webster's decision to publish it "a very important thing. It's clear that Larry intends to do journalism."

"I hired Larry at Car and Driver," recalls former C/D editor Csaba Csere. "He was a gofer, originally"--one of the young car nuts who do scut work like gassing and cleaning the test cars.

"I don't know if Csaba hired me as much as I forced him to hire me," jokes Webster. He earned a mechanical engineering degree at Lehigh, worked for a couple years--and then came back to C/D for a second stint as a gofer. "I just sort of rolled the dice," he says.
