Stefan Lombard isn’t the typical car guy. While like many classic car enthusiasts he fell in love with automobiles at an early age, he admits “my dad wasn’t a car guy and none of my neighbors were either, so I never really knew that people worked on their own cars, which is weird to vocalize. I’m not mechanically inclined as a result.” Nevertheless, Stefan’s fascination with automobiles has never waned. He still owns all the Hot Wheels cars, Tyco electric racing sets and years of Sports Car Illustrated magazine that he collected as a kid, and his vast car knowledge and writing talent led him to a career in auto journalism — and thankfully, to Hagerty Classic Cars. He purchased his 1984 Volvo 242 DL about a month ago.
