WHAT’S CARTHOLOGY ABOUT?

Cars, obviously. I love cars and love talking about them, which is why it’s not surprising I have this blog, right? More specifically, CARTHOLOGY is about taking a deeper dive into general car topics and theories.

You know, things like: What’s the difference between all-wheel drive systems? Are turbocharged engines really manna from automotive heaven? Does a roller test for an all-wheel-drive system really translate to real-world performance?

Ultimately, CARTHOLOGY is about sharing some of the insights I’ve gained from working in the auto industry, while also gaining insights from readers like yourself (because we can all learn something new). Unless, of course, you already know everything, in which case please contact me so you can write the rest of my blog!

WHO’S THIS TIM SHIN GUY?

I'm like The Stig from Top Gear (if The Stig were Asian and lost 93% of his driving abilities).

I’m just a Texas-born, Korean-American guy who made his way through LA and San Francisco and now lives in New York. Got that? Cool. Honestly, I’m just a guy who loves cars.

I’ve been lucky enough to work closely with a handful of auto manufacturers including Acura, Audi, Honda, Nissan and Volkswagen. I’ve worked as a product analyst, an automotive technical writer, an automotive writer and a creative director.

I’ve driven and evaluated cars on manufacturer’s test tracks doing comparison testing and have had the amazing opportunity to speak and work directly with the product planners and engineers who’ve worked on some of those cars. (Yes,  I know I’m Asian and no, I haven’t crashed any of them.)

When I’m not driving or writing about cars, you can usually find me binge eating on chocolate and catering to my dogs demanding requests. He’s not easily amused, that one.
