It was yesterday when a friend of mine showed me this site here and I think I will lock Shades of Gray in the drawer for a few days. I´ve never come around a place with that many topics and threads so I registered.

I´m 24 years old and from Europe. Is there a car section here because I´m a mechanic, would be the iceing on the cake!?

See you in the forums

There is a thread about vans and pedophiles/serial killers that may be of interest to a mechanic like you.

)

Welcome to ATS !!!

hope you've bought yourself a nice new shiny tin foil hat too!!


Anyway, you might want to have a look through this little list..
www.abovetopsecret.com...

As for your specific request..
try here.

If you've not done so yet.. take a look at the T+C's..
www.abovetopsecret.com...
Tattoo them backwards on your forehead so you can see them everytime you look in the mirror if you have to, but they're there to help..not hinder.

I'm sure another mod will be along later to post an incredible list of other very useful things


have fun and enjoy.. from another mechanic/MOT tester..

(out of that game now though)

Welcome to ATS.

There is, in fact, an automotive forum.

Go to the forums link at the top of this page. Scroll down that page to "Off Topic: General Chat Forums", then to Automotive Discussion

You'll see the fairly frequent threads concerning being followed by some group or other in a wide assortment of motor vehicles. You'll also find several of those threads authored by the same member or at least authored by a certain sub-group of ATS member.

Anyway, I need a new car. What would you suggest? My car-owning history goes as follows:
1972 Chevy Nova
70-something Karmann Ghia
1987 Ford Escort Sport
1989 Honda Rebel (motorcycle)
Mid-70s Renault Le Car
1991 Jeep Wrangler
1996 Hyundai Sonata
1994 Mitsubishi Montero
1976 MG Midget
1998 Saab 93
2007 Jeep Compass
2007 H2 (current but brother just totaled it 3 days ago!!)

See. We even got into a car-related discussion on your intro thread! Ain't I a good guy...

Thanks to everybody visiting here


Well, I´m from Germany so I never spend time under any of the cars listed above, sadly. I have to disappoint you
.
But I have driven an H2 before and they´re thirsty. VERY thirsty.

Hummer H2 I suppose?

There´s currently a broken R34 with the RB26DETT in my Garage and I found out it must be a VSPEC I but the Guy who had it before just messed all up, I´m trying to get rid of all the junk and build it up for the track. I´m aiming at about 600 awhp. Don´t want to change the internals for now but money is spare. Just couldn´t resist for that price.

Yes. Hummer H2. And it is almost a good thing he totaled it before I went bankrupt fueling it.

You've never seen a VW Karmann Ghia? Did they only make them for the North American market?

Or a Saab?

Anyway. Welcome.

I did not see such old cars in our shop yet, but I had the honor to work on a old Corvette C2 Stingray, soundgasm I can tell you

Currently, I should be working on the sky though, but nah, not today. Cold weather *brr

We´re specialized on BMW and Alfa Romeo mostly, so those are the cars I work on.
