    Well Kaitou, That's how is was for me, but I joined the Air Force and became a Aircraft Mechanic on C-17's, but I still had to work on my cars, thus I ended up somehow helping others on their's a bit. Granted I'm not a great mechanic, but I can do plenty of general car stuff, plus I'm trying to get licensed by the FAA to work on Aircraft and possibly get a degree in Aviation Maintenance.

    As for mechanics on the site, there may be more than you know. There's plenty of folks that just want to talk about different cars/planes/bikes/boats/etc., and they can do that here too. Also, If someone's having an issue with their vehicle, and not sure about what's causing it, they can ask here. They just may end up with an "That sucks, dude", but they might also get a decent answer or something to look for/check to help troubleshoot.

    I just learned because it's something essential that all guys must know, at least from my point of view.

    I know what you mean but here's the thing....A lot of people here neglect physical activity such as sports or anything that requires movement and just don't like getting their hands dirty, so if you find a mechanic, you would only find like two people here.

    True, but it's worth a shot to me, and plus the thread might be able to help someone else out. Only time will tell, but for the mean time we can talk about cars/trucks/planes/trains/bikes/boats/etc.

    As for that, Currently I own a 1986 Subaru Brat, and I'm looking at the new BRZ. It's been since 1996/7 that Subaru's had a 2 door coupe in production. I can't wait until to see it, but for now I'll have to stick with looking at the Scion/Toyota version.

    Late Edit: See, there's 2! That's cool if you don't want to stay a car mechanic. At least you'll have something to fall back onto while reaching into new endeavours, and you'll be able to fix your car(s) if they break. ^.^ What cars you into, and/or own/have?

    Well, I got a Sentra 2007, I barely had to repair it, just some minimal stuff. I mostly changed the wheels because of a few occasions.

    Sentra, Not bad from what I've heard. As expected, little to worry about breaking, like my mom's Altima. Struts and control arms, and other mechanical parts you probably won't have to worry about for a long, long time; but you can still change all the fluids and rotate the tires, which isn't bad. At least you won't be stranded on the side of the road, not knowing how to change a tire. And believe it or not, regulary keeping up with the fluids, and fluid changes, as well as tire rotations, will keep the car running good for a pretty long time. At least past the warranty XD

    Well, I'm a guy that always comes prepare so I always have like two tires in my trunk.

    I'm not expertise but I do it one, because I would need to fix my own car eventually and I don't like relying on others and second, girls consider it hot. So it's a win-win situation.

    As for that, Currently I own a 1986 Subaru Brat, and I'm looking at the new BRZ. It's been since 1996/7 that Subaru's had a 2 door coupe in production. I can't wait until to see it, but for now I'll have to stick with looking at the Scion/Toyota version.

    Late Edit: See, there's 2! That's cool if you don't want to stay a car mechanic. At least you'll have something to fall back onto while reaching into new endeavours, and you'll be able to fix your car(s) if they break. ^.^ What cars you into, and/or own/have?
    I'm currently driving a 1991 Honda Civic hatchback. Just an average Honda with no mods. Runs great and is good on gas. Although i would mod it if i had a job and the money to do it. I'm into pretty much any kind of car, but i'm kinda leaning towards more European/Japanese cars. I do like american cars, but Fords and Cadillacs with those Northstar engines are a pain to work on. I seen the pics of the Subaru BRZ and oh man! It looks awesome!
    Man that is whack!

    I'm good.. But thanks anyways...........

    Owns:

    1965 fastback mustang.

    1977 VW beetle [I think that's the year. I have to go look at the title again]

    Some other chevy truck. I haven't really paid attention to anything else about it. I don't even know what year it is, that's how much I could care less, but needless to say I own it. I'm guessing it's about the early 2000's

    '91 Honda Civic, not bad. I'd leave it be, modding it has become to expected. As for Northstar engines, I can agree. I've never dealt with one, but I've worked with a few American cars, and I don't like them. They're great vehicles until they break, then you're screwed. Honda's not too much better on placement of parts, from what I've dealt with. But then again the older the easier to work on for me.

    Yea the BRZ looks awesome. But I hope they don't screw it over like the Subaru XT, XT6, and SVX. They were great cars, but stupid mistakes in making the vehicle ruined them as performance cars. XT-Weak 85-95 hp engine, turbo version didn't do much either, XT-6 Same car as the XT but with a 6 cyclinder engine, that leaked oil like nobody's business, and SVX-Automatic Tranny only.

    And Kaitou, It never hurts to be extra prepared, though as for the ladies...It only counts if you can clean up well after the work's done. (Also have a good physique too.)

    Been looking to own a SRT-4 Dodge Neon. Those cars are nice & fast. But slowly becoming more rare. All the guys I know who actually take care of them don't want to let go, and all the ones I find besides them are usually poorly maintained. Plus I can't drive manual. I'm okay with slap stick transmissions but fully manual is a pain for me to grasp.

    Almost bought a brand new SRT-8 Challenger a few years ago right when Dodge released the new models. Didn't end up buying though. They look slick though. But now everyone seems to own a challenger :/

    Yeah definitely stay away from the Northstars, especially if the water pump and the starter goes bad. Plus the engine is so big that there is a minimal amount of space, so replacing parts are a headache. Well hopefully when my back is better and i get a job, i can save some money and get myself another car. Maybe a Toyota, Nissan or a Vdub.

    Yea, they tend to be like that on American cars, but a fair amont of others too. Thus is why I stick to old Subaru's. Plenty of room to work in, and replacing's an ease. Though keep in mind, They're their own little beast, but once to learn them (Which ain't hard) it's almsot cake. VW's are almost the Subaru's/Honda's of the European market from what I've heard and seen.

    As for the SRT-4's If they're anything like the old Dodge/Plymouth/Chrysler Neon's they're awesome little cars. But you're right, if someone lets the maintenance go on it for too long, it'll go to crap. As far Tranny's look at your regular route to work/school and back. If there's a ton of stop and go traffic, get a Auto or with the paddles on the the steering wheel. (Because most of those switch to auto too.) The New Challenger's look awesome, I wish that Dodge did the Charger like that. But they failed massively on the Charger in my book.

    Well, when I was a kid (and even now) I became interested in cars (because my dad is in profession and hobby a mechanic) but because of my eyesight, unfortunately, I can't really do anything about it.

    Which is a shame, because if I had good eyes I'd definitely be driving some sort of car and would probably have ended up getting into mechanics as a profession like my dad rather than computers (which is the only thing I'm good at due to the disability >_>)

    I don't know much about cars though, since I stopped bothering trying to learn fairly early on. I understand the concept of most things, and given enough time and a little explanation I could understand mostly anything.... but yeah. xD

    I would probably have a Toyota Supra. When I was a kid and even now, I thought they were pretty nifty sports cars. They're quite rare over here - I've maybe seen three in my entire life. My dad has an Evo IV though, so >_>

    That sucks, but even if you don't drive, you can still help someone out in a pinch with what you do know. I personally would suggest that you keep on trying to learn, because all else fails, it'll be handy somehow, some way down the road.

    Toyota Supra's a mean little car, and done right it can be a total monster. If you really want one, I'd try looking out for U.S. Military if they're near you. Especially if they just came from Japan.There may also be a website that Americans in England, or British use to sell stuff. Because they might bring one with them, and quite a few actually run a deal of shipping such cars to places in Europe. I know Germany has tons of JDM cars running around, and tak to the right guy can he may work something out for you with getting one shipped.

    Evo 4's I don't know too much about, but the Evo's I do know are pretty awesome. Mitshubishi's done fairly well with cars, especially the Evo's. And I haven't heard too many complaints.

    O_O I completely forgot about this thread >_<

    That a nice video of the BRZ Deathy. Should be interesting to see how Toyota and Subie team up with this car. I love the lines but I am alil weary of it not being turbocharged. I have no doubt the aftermarket community will solve this issue xD

    Currently I'm working on upgrading the lighting in my car. I just did a full HID conversion (headlights and fogs) Love how much of a difference they make though I'm currently waiting for a replacement ballast >_< (dreaded flicker)

    Anyway I've got an 03 Monte Carlo SS I've done a fair amount of work too.
    Plugs, wires, coils, catback exhaust (borla =D), downpipe, intake blah blah blah ^_^

    It's fun but I've got my sights set on a STI or an EVO
