Collectible Automobile Magazine

Our Staff

Frank-150x150Frank Peiler
Frank Peiler joined Collectible Automobile®’s parent company in 1972 as the young firm’s first art director and only its eighth employee. Though responsible for the look of books and magazines on topics as varied as guns, golf, bicycles, and bridal fashions, Frank brought with him the special knowledge and experience of a lifelong car enthusiast, which quickly benefited the company’s Consumer Guide® automotive titles. Within a few years, he was named a vice president of the growing company and headed a much-expanded art department. After spearheading the company’s successful move into the “classic car” realm, Frank was named publisher of a separate automotive division formed in 1979. Five years later, he conceived Collectible Automobile® magazine as the kind of old-car periodical he himself wanted to read. Popular from the first, CA marked its 30th anniversary in 2014 as the recognized leader in its field and the winner of numerous awards. In recent years, Frank has lent his executive and creative talents to Consumer Guide®’s online operations. He is a member of the Society of Automotive Historians.
