A2: David E. Davis Jr.

Automobile Magazine reports that automotive journalist David E. Davis Jr., who founded the popular Ann Arbor-based magazine in 1985, has died following complications from surgery for bladder cancer: “Davis, who had already refashioned Car and Driver into one of the most literate and entertaining special-interest magazines in America, imagined Automobile Magazine as a celebration of the automotive good life with the rallying cry ‘No Boring Cars,’ but the slogan could just as easily have been applied to everything else in his life: No boring stories. No boring meetings. No boring road trips. No boring wardrobes. No boring friends. No boring employees.” [Source]
