Email: jeff.smith@carcraft.com
Jeff Smith started with Petersen Publishing in 1979 as Feature Editor for Car Craft after graduating from Iowa State University. He became the editor in 1984 and then in 1987 took on the job as editor of Hot Rod for over six years. He took a break from the editor's chair until Chevy High Performance called, running that title from 1998 until 2003 when he returned to Car Craft as the first editor to hold that title twice, but only for about a year when he moved to his current Senior Technical Editor position. Jeff now spends most of his time focusing on his passion of testing products, building engines, and performing many of the more involved technical stories for Car Craft. Jeff is married to wife Valerye and he has two grown children Amber and Graham who live in his home state of Iowa. His stable of cars includes an evolving number of Chevelles including his track day and autocross blue '65 Chevelle and his flamed '65 El Camino.
