David Freiburger is the Editor In Chief of HOT ROD and HOT ROD Deluxe.
He's never held a job that did not revolve around cars, starting with a position at a Dodge dealership parts counter immediately after high school, then moving to a machine shop, then an aftermarket ignition company, and finally landing at Petersen Publishing in 1991 as a HOT ROD staff editor. At the publishing company, he's been editor of 4-Wheel & Off-Road, Car Craft, Rod & Custom, and many one-time publications.
Freiburger can often be seen on HOT ROD TV, heard on HOT ROD Live Radio, and followed on road trips in episodes of the Roadkill show at YouTube.com/MotorTrend. He's a member of the Bonneville 200 MPH Club, having held many land-speed records, and is renowned for owning far too many cars (numbering a couple dozen as of this writing), the most well known of which is the F-Bomb Camaro.
