Learning from scratch??

Ok, I know virtually nothing about cars. So, as a beginner, how do I go about knowing about cars? I feel overwhelmed, and I'm a slow learner.

go to www.howstuffworks.com and read some of the automotive stuff. It's all explained pretty well.

Then just listen around here for a while

Yes, i agree that that would help but its only good for certain areas like helping you with the knowledge on THAT/THOSE cars. What it does teach you is how they work or what they require incase of repair and whatever else other then the specs and looks of the car. If starting from scratch i'd go to all the places mentioned above and also look for some others and search this site for good, informative posts. Good luck with your search for knowledge.
