Ever get a good feeling about someone before you’ve actually met them? If so, then let me introduce you to Saroja Cunningham, the lovely lady who will now be contributing to Ridelust.com. Saroja not only digs automobiles, but lives them, races them and works on them, and since she’ll now be writing for RL.com, I just though it fitting to give her a proper introduction.

Saroja Cunningham was not raised with cars, but a childhood crush on a neighbor’s souped up Dodge Coronet 500 made sure that high performance cars became an integral part of her life. Her first car, purchased when she was just 16, a 1969 Plymouth Road Runner, made her popular with even her older brother’s car-less friends.
It was through the Shelby Club that Saroja got her first on-track experience in her 1993 Mustang Cobra. She was hooked. When her job as an Aerospace Engineer took her to Edwards Air Force Base, near Willow Springs Raceway, she took the opportunity to get her SCCA license and went racing in a 1974 Mazda RX3 GT3. Soon the Open Road called, and she ran several different high-performance cars in the Virginia City Hill Climb.
While itching to get back in the driver’s seat, Saroja bides her time as a freelance automotive journalist, sharing her passion and unique perspective on various automotive activities and events throughout the country.
