      Interesting parallels. There is a bit of truth to each one of those things you mentioned.

      • I used to be a percussionist. That gave me a better grasp on what made a drummer a talented addition to a band, vs. a drummer that could be replaced by a machine. I still love music, but beyond that scope of knowledge, I'm musically illiterate. My tastes are pretty pedestrian, and worthy of Andy's ridicule.
      • I love photography. My wife thinks I'm a great photographer. Most photographers think my photography sucks. You can guess who I tend to believe.
      • I try to cook, but I'm not terribly good at it. Hence, when someone asks me to recommend a good restaurant, my personal opinion on a place doesn't mean it would be foodie worthy.


      As a guy who sucks at a lot more things than I'm good at... that all sounds snobbish and unfair, but it's absolutely real.

      Sure... wrenching isn't the be-all, end-all to being a car enthusiast, it's too multi-faceted a hobby to use such a broad brush.
      That said, there needs to be some basis of knowledge of the machine, and there few better ways of getting that knowledge than by taking the thing apart.

      So do I lose my enthusiast card because I have done some limited wrenching but now a) don't have the time to do so and; b) can afford to pay someone, so I no longer perform any maintenance beyond detail oriented things or small projects I set aside for my seldom few days off and to myself?

      Yet I can still diagnose a vast majority of issues before I get to the dealership, i usually leave a written letter stating my thoughts, the likely codes, and likely diagnosis which is usually correct. Guess I'm just not a hardcore enthusiast though because I'd rather spend the extra $20 to have my oil changed instead of spending an afternoon rearranging things to make space for the ramps/jacks etc., drain the oil replace the oil, and then have to go and dump the oil.


      ADD I get what you're saying but as already pointed out, it's a very narrow minded frame of view. I think SFV's use of "myopic" is pretty on the money.

      Not everyone has to be that way. Are you still a car guy? Sure. Just not as much as someone who is enthusiastic as someone who enjoys the pie.

      There are things Iíve tried and struggled at, and things I wonít even attempt again (example: rusty exhausts. Nope. Going to pay for that)

      That said, I consider the dudes who can craft a beautiful set of tubular headers craftsman, artists, would love to learn more, and if one of them offered to show me how to build some, I would be completely yoked about it. I look up to them because they possess a skill and a facet of being an automotive god I donít currently have, and you donít give a ****.

      This is why all my closest friends wrench, we are in it. We strive to learn more and more.

      Iím redoing my 911 engine this year. Iíve never done it before and Iím learning a ton. Iíve already made mistakes but Iím gaining confidence and skills I didnít have 5 years ago. Thatís what life is all about imho; pushing yourself and constantly learning.

      You seem content where you are at, thatís fine if thatís what you want. I want the whole pie.

      Again, I am more into the driving aspect of cars. I know how they work. Honestly, I'd rather continue to learn more about how they work when being driven in terms of driver inputs and road conditions and such. There is a lot of quality people on this board that have insanely cool cars, are really good drivers, and know and share a ton of really cool and useful content so I'm not here to toot my own horn. I'm just trying to show you that, as much as you care about the wrenching aspect, I care about the driving aspect.

      I've gotten really interested in rally over the past few years. I've attended a stage rally event, went to a rally driving school, and might do a rally cross at some point. I'm very interested in learning what it takes to improve my skills in that aspect of driving. I'm blown away at how intense rally driving is with the use of pace notes and co-driver's and all of the other elements.

      I understand that tires, brakes, suspension, etc. all make the car handle and react in different ways but I have yet to really get much hands on learning with those variables other than my one day class at DirtFish. I want more of that. What I don't want is to learn how to dismantle and reassemble a full set of Reiger suspension or weld a roll cage in a car or change out a driveshaft. I have ZERO interest in it. That doesn't make me less of an enthusiast than you.

      It appears I have triggered some people, which was not my intention. Just sharing my opinion of Doug, and why i don't really take his opinions that seriously. He isn't a gearhead.

      Gearheads wrench. Can that be ok? If you don't change your oil, you aren't a gearhead. Minimum barrier to entry.

      Or does society/automotive culture need to be so inclusive/accepting and worried about offending/hurting people's feelings that there is no barrier to entry to anything anymore?

      You can call me myopic or a dickhead, but that isn't my intention, I don't feel that I've insulted anyone, & I am sharing my opinion. If that upsets you I am sorry, but this is a real opinion that is shared by a LOT of gearheads. The built not bought mentality is VERY real, and to completely ignore it doesn't exist is myopic, imho. Safe space. Bubble. Ignoring things you don't want to hear.

      Go to ANY car meet, and you will see it. You have the old dudes who restored some muscle car themselves, vs the old guys that show up in a 2019 Challenger and they pretend they're 'in the club'. The dudes driving classic 911s and 2002s, vs the guy that rolls in with a new M4/caymen. Or a JDM meet, the dudes with built 300ZXs and 240s vs a guy in a new stock 370Z and supra. I guarantee you most of the dudes with built cars are rolling their eyes at those people. It's a brand new car, and anyone with a decent credit score can walk into a dealership and come out the other side with basically the same thing. How is that worthy of admiration or impressing anyone? Is it a cool car? Sure. Is that guy a car enthusiast? I don't know, kinda? But I think the people who built their cars are MUCH MORE enthusiastic than the guy who just writes a check every month. I'm perfectly secure enough to admit there are people who know way more than me, and I look up to them because they have knowedge, skills, and experience I don't have. I'm not sure why/when admitting that some people are more into something than you became such an inconceivable, unmentionable statement.

      You're entitled to whatever opinion you have of what an enthusiast is, what a gearhead is, and of my opinions. Please share the same courtesy towards me if we disagree, there is no need to be emotional/defensive. It's perfectly fine if you disagree.

      Why can't people enjoy different aspects of the hobby, though? Some people just like driving more than wrenching, or don't have the space or tools or confidence to learn how to work on their cars.

      Sometimes I don't even consider myself to be that big of a car enthusiast just because all I like to do is work on stuff. I rarely go out for fun drives or to the track or to any meets because I'd rather be spending that time wrenching or tinkering, so there's a pretty big part of the hobby that I don't even participate in. Just because someone else prefers to do the opposite doesn't make them any less of a car enthusiast IMO.

      I don't know why you would. It's still under warranty, right?

      Gearheads wrench. Can that be ok? If you don't change your oil, you aren't a gearhead. Minimum barrier to entry.

      Or does society/automotive culture need to be so inclusive/accepting and worried about offending/hurting people's feelings that there is no barrier to entry to anything anymore?

      You can call me myopic or a dickhead, but that isn't my intention, I don't feel that I've insulted anyone, & I am sharing my opinion. If that upsets you I am sorry, but this is a real opinion that is shared by a LOT of gearheads. The built not bought mentality is VERY real, and to completely ignore it doesn't exist is myopic, imho. Safe space. Bubble. Ignoring things you don't want to hear.

      Go to ANY car meet, and you will see it. You have the old dudes who restored some muscle car themselves, vs the old guys that show up in a 2019 Challenger and they pretend they're 'in the club'. The dudes driving classic 911s and 2002s, vs the guy that rolls in with a new M4/caymen. Or a JDM meet, the dudes with built 300ZXs and 240s vs a guy in a new stock 370Z and supra. I guarantee you most of the dudes with built cars are rolling their eyes at those people. It's a brand new car, and anyone with a decent credit score can walk into a dealership and come out the other side with basically the same thing. How is that worthy of admiration or impressing anyone? Is it a cool car? Sure. Is that guy a car enthusiast? I don't know, kinda? But I think the people who built their cars are MUCH MORE enthusiastic than the guy who just writes a check every month. I'm perfectly secure enough to admit there are people who know way more than me, and I look up to them because they have knowedge, skills, and experience I don't have. I'm not sure why/when admitting that some people are more into something than you became such an inconceivable, unmentionable statement.

      You're entitled to whatever opinion you have of what an enthusiast is, what a gearhead is, and of my opinions. Please share the same courtesy towards me if we disagree, there is no need to be emotional/defensive. It's perfectly fine if you disagree.
      Understand that I've taken your posts as a conversation and am not upset that you feel the way you do. I think you've done a good job explaining your points.

      I think what is triggering a bit about your comments is that wrenching is the only true barrier to entry for being a car guy.

      Yeesh. Some very narrow definitions about being a car enthusiast in here.

      I only really got into wrenching once I got *older*. When I was younger, I leased cars so I had a warranty, and I didnít have a lot of time to work on them. Did more autocrossing back then too, so, sorry VW Credit

      For me, Doug falls in that category of YouTuber I like, but the videos arenít for me. I tend not to get through the entire video, but I see why people get into his detailed walkthroughs.

      The guys I donít ďgetĒ are Vehicle Virgins or AutoVlog, where Iím not exactly sure why people are watching. And thatís not even a knock on them, I just donít see it, not for me, but clearly theyíre doing fine without me watching them.

      Spike Feresten and Matt Farah are just pure entertainment for me, but theyíre who I listen to the most. And they arenít building a thing.
