Well I have to wait and see I am not familiar with that and my truck is all I work on now. My days of being a car enthusiast i never really had I just buy the chilton repair manual and do the work myself. I just a cheap person I had fast car along time ago bought that way. when I was young and got payed bonus money to get to a factory with in a period of time. that really was the incentive back then. The miles were were paid made the car payment insurance and repairs i had a good boss back then.

The first thing that got me into cars was my dad buying an old Ferrari. But now he's a Porsche-head and I, personally, hate Porsche because they all look the same. What really got me back into cars was watching Top Gear

Gundams, I used to spend a huge part of my child hood building it, then i realized how similar it is putting parts on a car and putting together a Gundamn model.

I also spent a good deal of my childhood building Gundam models. I always loved things like that, so it's not a surprise I'd love cars too.

to be honest, fast and furious as well as initial D. Nowadays though, probably Top Gear, that show is so biased and planned out, but its still fun to watch =P

I was a little tyke, and my dad and I would always drive by this car dealership at the end of our street. For months, there was this shiny, new yellow Corvette that sat atop one of the pedestals in the lot, and I'd always point to it and mention it when we went by. After that I was hooked.

My dad.......we built our first car when i was 14. It was a 1995 MR2 Turbo. That car went on to Magazines and a lot of Nopi Shows where consistently won the street prepped import class. Ran a 11.2 pretty consistent which was brutally fast for the late 90s in a street car on street radials.

Since then I started aftermarket EFI and ECU tuning at 17 and never looked back. Now i get sent around the US to tune other peoples' dream vehicles.

I sleep, eat, and breath cars. I hope this industry is around for a while otherwise i might have to get a real job.

If you're after girls that will be impressed with your car. Those girls are nothing but trouble.
