Driven to new lengths: cross-country

   Folks, this marks my final post on the Driven blog, featuring my 10-year-old column, Driven.

   It has been a fun ride for me and I hope for you, too. I want to thank my readers and friends for all their support and comments over the nearly 10 years the column has appeared on the pages and website of The Miami Herald.

   Columns have covered everything from Minis to Maybachs, Boxters to Bentleys, the Ford GT and new Challenger R/T. There were the annual auto shows, and even a personal account of that stainless-steel wonder, the DeLorean, on its 25th anniversary.

   For those who have been here the past decade, you may recall the column first appeared in the Herald's Wheels & Waves section. After the section was discontinued, the column was moved to the Business section and finally online.

   Now it takes yet another turn: It goes cross-country on the McClatchy-Tribune wire service. McClatchy is the parent company of The Miami Herald. The column now will reach hundreds of papers and websites and, hopefully, one near you.

   Meanwhile, enjoy your wheels and always be mindful of your carbon tire track. See you on the road!

Hi Barry,
Sorry to see your column go, I enjoyed your writing.
However, the McClatchy wire service looks like a good opportunity for your syndicated column. I'm sure you'll get a lot more readers now, albeit without that South Florida feel.
I mean, how well will that SUV tow a trailer up a the mountain?
Best to you and thanks for everything.
