Where did you learn about cars? - Page 3 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


General GM Chat When starting new posts, please specify YEAR, MAKE, MODEL, ENGINE type, and whatever modifications you have made. Chat about all things GM (and related cars). Off-topic stuff should be in the Lounge, and all Model specific mechanical problems should be posted in the proper forum.

I had five older brothers. Two of the oldest had almost identical late fifties Pontiacs and they were very competitive. Later one of them ordered a beautiful 66 Grand Prix with three deuces, four speed, 3/4 racing cam and I think a 4:11 rear end. He did other minor cosmetic modifications later. I was sixteen and hooked for life.

I learned off my 95 Regal just by needing to get work done to it and not trusting anyone else to do it. My knowledge increased by a large margin when I bought the Jag and started working on that as well. I guess you have to start somewhere.

Haha I barely trust Les Schwab to balance my tires!

I let my sister drive my car, against my best judgment, and the first thing she does is run my mirror into another car! Now I can see why I am distrusting with my vehicles...
