Everyday Driver provides entertaining and informative car reviews of great vehicles real people can afford. Our unique 5-7 minute videos offer stunning photography and a sense of how each car feels to own and drive. We keep things fun enough for the average commuter and still detailed enough for the car obsessed. When our reviews give you a laugh and prompt you to test drive a car for yourself, then we’ve done our job! We want everyone to own a car they love.
In the few short years since Everyday Driver began, we’ve gained fans from around the world and the respect of the automotive world. We are members of the Motor Press Guild, a group consisting of many of the biggest names in automotive journalism. In spite of our small budgets we’ve been nominated for video of the year in 2010, 2011, and 2012 – something even the big names haven’t accomplished! And in 2012 the Rocky Mountain Auto Press chose our Pacific Coast Highway Video as piece of the year!
Thanks for watching. This is only the beginning.
Enjoy the site, and we want to hear from you:
Who is Todd Deeken?
Todd is a long-haired car freak who grew up learning from his mechanic grandfather and big-sedan obsessed father. He hunkered over car magazines and constantly changed his dream car for years before he could drive. But thinking his car obsession was only a hobby, he went into the film industry instead. Over the next decade he worked as a screenwriter, director, editor, and wound up working for New Line Cinema. After working in post-production and delivery for huge films like the Austin Powers series and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he comes to “Everyday Driver” to reclaim his first love, Cars.
Hosting the show and helping others find great cars has proven more fun than he even imagined. For the past few years he’s driven supercars and supermarket haulers and would much rather carve up a canyon road than drag from the lights. He finds writing about cars almost as much fun as talking about them. Almost. If you’re buying a car he’d love to help, just ask him. Everyone else does.
Who is Paul Schmucker?
Paul has yet to discover a freeway onramp with a posted speed limit. Dinner conversations with Paul are usually ‘steered’ towards discussions about cars. He loves cars so much he holds a degree in transportation design from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA. His experiences designing for companies such as Ford Motor Co., Kawasaki Motors Corp. USA and Volvo Trucks North America help him contribute a unique perspective of how the design & construction of a car affects your driving experience.
Not only has he found hosting the show to be tremendously fun, but he’s discovered a new way to help people find a car they truly love. He’s always up for a visit to a dealership and enjoys saying things like “you can’t drive a spec sheet.” Don’t be surprised if he can identify cars a mile away. His thought-provoking Awarnings cover subjects such as Hybrids, Oblivious Drivers, Tasteless Accessories and other ‘don’ts’ you’re probably guilty of.
