How I got into cars

By the way, the other "Help Me" is me. I might've made two accounts.

Introduction (Part 2)

I first started liking cars when I was scrolling through Netflix, and I came across a show called Top Gear. (You might've heard of it!), and the first episode I watched was the Burma Special, which was not everybody's favourite, but because I was younger, I found all of the funny bumps and crashes, or every time James's tent was suspended in the air, really hilarious. I had then tried to find time to watch Top Gear whenever I could. After a while I started to realize weird things about the show, like: "why are they driving on the wrong side of the road" or "What the heck is a Peugeot." And so, I got interested in any weird foreign car. Even the stuff that some other people in different parts of the world would find boring.

Designing cars

Once I got a feel for some weird cars, I decided that I wanted to try designing my own cars. I had tried before, but I wanted to perfect them. So I developed this method of drawing a cube, and then adding on to it. This produced the car that is now my profile picture. I've been designing cars since. Not as a profession (yet), but I think I've got some pretty good stuff. I also have a few books on car design. One of the books that I still cherish is called 1001 Dream Cars You Have To Drive Before You Die, and I still read it daily. But com to think of it, I started reading about cars through Consumer Reports. It was a bit boring, but I loved that it listed a bunch of the newest cars, all in one magazine. I also read Car and Driver for quite a while, and I still go to reread some of them once in a while.

Outro

So yeah, that is pretty much how I came to like cars. Thanks for reading!
