Paul Brand is well known and respected for his vast knowledge of automobiles. Hes the host of Autotalk, a radio show devoted to automobiles, and an automotive columnist for the Minneapolis Star Tribune. As an automotive troubleshooter, race-car driver, and leading instructor of law enforcement pursuit driving, Brand makes his shows and columns informative and entertaining with his wit, knowledge, and easy-to-understand advice on any and all auto problems. A typical show will find Brand expertly fielding questions about changing your own oil, finding the source of squeaks, squeals, and rattles or even deciphering the complex inner workings of an automatic transmission, an engine, or electronics. One of Brand's goals is simply to help people understand more about automobiles so that they may get longer service life and be wiser customers. He is in great demand as a speaker at automotive conventions, trade shows, and anywhere there is a gathering of people connected with the automobile industry. Brand resides in Lino Lakes, Minnesota.
