Driven Lifestyle Magazine would like to welcome Jeff Southards and JDS Motorsports to our Network family.

Jeff comes from a lineage of gear heads, from an early age pretty much all he knew were cars. His father ran an auto parts store for 25 years, in which he started stocking shelves around eleven or twelve years old.  While most kids were playing sports, he was going to car shows and  admiring automobiles. As soon as he was old enough to drive he began spending his time behind the wheel of his classics. So from the start there was no other way for him, but to be a “GEAR HEAD”!

Fast forward a few years and now he owns his own parts store and continues to add to his collection of automobiles. The weekends haven’t changed much for him either, not a weekend goes by that he is not somewhere at a car show, cruise in, or drag race.

In recent years he began to mixed his other hobby, photography, in with his Driven Lifestyle. And lucky for all of us Jeff has chosen to join our team and provide us with updates of his week-end car show adventures.  So be on the look out for Jeff and his camera!

Be sure to check in here at Driven Lifestyle Magazine often, where you can usually find event coverage from a new location each week by Jeff and also check out his blogs at

Welcome Aboard Jeff!
