As a columnist for 8 years for an automotive magazine, and someone who has restored and replicated the cars my friends and I have dreamed about, I know the guys in this incredibly human film. I’ve pitched in with them on builds and restorations. I’ve street raced them. We’ve scared each other stupid on country and canyon roads. I remember the girls and know the women they’ve become. I know this hardscrabble town nested with its swayback barns and ancient silos in the aching beauty of the Catskill Mountains. And like most guys across the country, I know the resonant force of dream and memory that drives a story like Demon on Wheels.
