Default Well, Hey, There!

Hello all, to repeat a good number of posts here, I'm new to cars, just buying my first one tomorrow. It's an '89 Ford Probe GL; silver, with black side molding. Automatic transmission (I have nothing against manuals, auto just seems easier to learn in, since that's what I'll be doing). I'm here to learn about cars in general, and hopefully spiff up my new baby over the the next year or so, as paychecks allow. >.<

So, yeah! Hi.

Ohh, and I'm based in British Columbia, Canada. Just starting university next week, majoring in English or Philosophy, whichever takes my fancy. Doesn't that sound like a car afficionado just waiting to happen? XD

English or philosophy? Why?

English and philosophy may be completely useless in "the real world", but for now, it just seems like a fun choice. I always did well in my English classes, and philosophy... I just like to argue. I suppose in the future I'll aim for law school, or a teachers college, or business school, or something more practical- but what's wrong with academia? >.>

Nice mix. What are your plans? Psych is interesting, I'm taking a course in it this semester.
