|Paul Williams Paul Williams is an award-winning Ottawa-based automotive writer and a member of the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada. He began writing about cars professionally in 2000.

He drives a Honda Element and a Honda S2000, and also owns a 1956 MGA and a 1967 MGB-GT (there’s also a 1971 Austin America that could be yours!). He’s active in several enthusiast car clubs, and if it’s got a motor and wheels, Paul probably likes it.|

Growing up close to the track, with his father a mechanic for a race team, James has been around cars all his life. James spends a lot of his time driving, writing or talking about cars.

|Lesley WimbushIn 5th grade, Lesley traded drawings of muscles cars for chocolate bars – and things really haven’t changed much since then. After nearly 20 years in the newspaper industry working as a layout artist, editorial cartoonist and auto section editor, she turned to full-time freelancing in 2010 – a career choice made easier by the fact that she doesn’t eat much.
Lesley is very happy to be a returning member of the Autos.ca team, having been a frequent contributor during the early Canadian Driver days. In addition to her weekly road tests on Autos.ca, Lesley is also a regular contributor to the Toronto Star and is frequently published in Lush Luxury Magazine, Acura Expressions Magazine, Audi Magazine and even Vanity Fair. Her motor sports illustrations have appeared in newspapers across North America, and her client list has included many luminaries of the racing world.
When not cursing the gremlins behind the insidious check engine light on the “Mighty Dak” – a 400 hp modified Dodge Dakota, Lesley can sometimes be found lapping her Mazda MX3 KLZE at Mosport.
