I guess that's my other problem. I don't care to be a know it all. Never did. I was only interested in cars and leaning more. I was always helping my dad repair something, or buiklding model cars, or reading car magazines from teh moment I could read. ANYTHING that had to do with cars, new or old, fast or slow, stock or modified. I steered from my dad's lap from when I was only 5 (in his renault 4CV, a tiny little car). I started autocossing the moment I got my license. it's always been my passion. Whenever I was in the presence of people that knew more than me, I just listened and watched and learned. I never had the option of the anonymity of the web, and I never saved proof that was web enabled just on the off chance that some idiot punk would question it or argue with it.
it's no fun anymore, and a hobby is supposed to be fun, or you don't do it.
