The Backstory

Garage Talk was started as a conversation between friends about a shared passion, but it does not end there.

It never fails, every time Matt & Cory get together the conversation will always turn to cars; whether it be the latest news or trends, what is causing woe in the automotive world, or perhaps just to share a bit of joy.​
This passion for cars turned into Garage Talk: a discussion about all things automotive. 

We encourage you to sound off about what excites, drives you mad, or just need to vent about the automotive world. Your can visit our homepage and fill out the form that will shoot us an email with your thoughts and opinions, at

Below you can find out about our creators and the voices behind Garage Talk, Matt & Cory.

Matt’s love of all things automotive came about at a very young age when his grandmother (an ex race car driver) would put him in her lap while driving around their rural neighborhood and let him “drive.” This started a passion that ultimately lead him to pursue a degree in Automotive Technology and several ASE certifications and a handful of jobs in the auto industry. His first car was non other than Kit from night rider (albeit a 12V Power Wheels like version). For Christmas some years later he was given a 1980 Honda XR80 dirt bike, which for a preteen made for an abundant amount of freedom. It was the sale of this beloved bike that funded his first car purchase of a 1971 VW Super Beetle, which he and his father rebuilt from the ground up. He currently works for an East Texas school district as a bus mechanic, but the passion for air cooled VW’s lives on.

Cory’s love of cars came at a time of great change in his young life. At the age of 9 his family moved 200+ miles away from the only home he knew. During the first few months of life in a new town, a certain green pony car caught his eye and just begged the question that had to be answered, “what kind of car is that?!?”The answer led to much research in the pre-internet world. Within the first summer, an entire 29 year history of the Chevy Camaro had been gathered and obsessed over. There was no going back, he was hooked.


Flash forward 16 years and that kid finally had his dream car, an anniversary edition no less. While that car may be gone from his life, the passion it created and stirred certainly did not. After working years in the retail industry it became apparent it was time for something new, something that brought that passion back to life.
