Rep: 10 josh is on a distinguished road
Default hello fellow car lovers

I got on Carforum because I love cars and want to learn as much as I can about them. My Grampa was a mechanic and is helping me learn the trade so I can be to. I'm 14, in high school and Im going to go to essex tech to get a jump start on my education in the automobile world. My two favorite cars are between the Shelby GT500 Super Snake and the Cadilac CTS-V. I live in Fairfax Vermont and am curently saving up for my first car. I told you something about me, so now its your turn. Tell us a little something about your self.

I'm carforum.net 's other underage, no-license member, and I'm learning a lot from here and my dad to the point where I've actually really contributed to help out

My favourite cars? Oh gosh.. Let me list'em... Lexus IS300, BMW 3-Series (E30-E46), Mazda RX-7 (FC & FD generations), Mazda RX-8, Nissan 240sx, Mazda Miata MX-5, Subaru Impreza WRX STi, Nissan 350z/370z, Chevrolet Corvette (c3-c5), Lotus Esprit, Nissan Skyline (R32 & R34), and the Lotus Elise.

Oh, and I've worked on 66 Mustangs, Lexus IS 250s, 10-second 1/4 mile C6 Corvette, Ford Mustang Roush, and a Mini Cooper. They were all my dads

I'm 18, and I really like driving. I've always wanted to drive since I was really young, and I've been driving my parents cars for a few years now. I want a car of my own but I can't afford one as I'm in post secondary right now. I know nothing about working on cars (besides changing tires and other basic stuff), but I hope to learn when I get my own beater. My dad knows a fair amount about cars (has rebuilt engines and stuff), but he buys the most boring maintenance free cars ever (right now he has a Toyota Echo and he's expressed interest in electric cars). My favorite car is the late 90's Viper GTS, and I'm studying to be a mining engineer.

If gas prices weren't so high, I'd get myself a big ol' truck

Thanks for the replys. I cant wait to be able to drive more than my uncle's Subaru Outback Limeted Edition in a school parking lot. And it's nice to hear about another Lotus fan. I just wish that my girlfriend was more into the whole fast car thing. Or at leats into nice cars. Atleast she likes trucks

Silverado. Definetely. DEFOOOO NETELY.

And it's a guy thing. Cars that is. Unless you mean drag queens Which. They dont know anything either.

But then thats why you got us to argue about with cars Welcome to the forums!

And yep, I love them Lotus' but I'm really trying to skim down my favourite car list .-.

Edit: Whats wrong with a Subaru Outback? It's a Subaru. It has all-wheel drive. Seems great to me Better than my mom's CR-V which, hope to god, will only be a year since I'm saving for a car as we speak with my part-time job. Little-by-little I'll get one

Dodge Ram all the way for me. I may come off as a Mopar fanboy but I'm really not. I just love the styling of dodges. I wouldn't mind an F-series either, but Chevy trucks don't really do anything for me.

I have NEVER been a pickup truck kind of guy, but my grandpa has had a Chevy S10 for as long as I can remember (he was a construction worker, so he needed it) , so the feel of a Chevy pickup is very familiar to me (as well as it's very smooth engine), so when I stepped into a cousin's Silverado (with four rear-wheels. Looks badass, and apparently has a purpose), it was everything familiar- but more, and better!

When it comes to pickup trucks, my grandpa has brainwashed Chevrolet into me. Better than brainwashing Mazda or Toyota into me-- dont get me wrong! I love Toyota's and Mazda's! But their pickup trucks? PLEASE. They just are clowns to the pickup-truck games.

Except he was a Dodge fan
