Martyn L. Schorr has a history with high-performance cars that dates back to the beginning of Ford's Total Performance era over fifty years ago. He rode with Carroll Shelby and was at the press conference in New York for the debut of the Lola-built Ford GT that became the GT40. Schorr drove the GT40 on streets of New York City and went with Mickey Thompson in 1969 to Bonneville to set a book full of records. He personally knew all the key players from Ford's racing program from his years as a magazine editor. Schorr is the author of Motion Performance (Motorbooks, 2009).
Joe Oldham (1943 - 2017) was a journalist whose career began in 1964 when he earned the position of writer/editor for Magnum Royal Publications, where he road-tested every muscle car for magazines such as Hi-Performance Cars, Speed & Supercar, and Supercars Annual until 1976. He spent the next 32 years at The Hearst Corporation, and the next 18+ as editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics.
