I just read Matt King's Editor's page in the new Car Craft (April 2002) called "It Takes All Kinds." He identifies different kinds of car guys (Detail Guy, The Racer, The Bench Racer, Mopar Man, MacGyver Clone, Trivia Buff, Joe Mechanic, Lawn Chair Man, Rice Boy, and Junkyard Dog).

Which kind are you? Can you add any others?

Well, lets see I am a Detail Guy, Bench Racer, Gear-head, Mechanic, Mr. Fix-it, and a few others. I hope to be a Racer when I'm done, I have a need for speed (and acceleration).

I haven't read it yet either, but I'd have to say, detail guy, racer, and maybe even a rice boy. The reason I say rice boy is because the audio/video system I have in my car, and it looks faster than it is.(until I build that big block sitting in my backyard)

I guess I've seen myself in just about all those. Guess I'm just either a carguy or a gearhead. Remember you can never own too many cars.

One quick trip around any of my cars and you would be leaning heavily toward "McGyver Clone". Lot's of self fabricated stuff going on.

Infact the guys at our local car club shop call me "Loony Larry" because they never know what to expect might show up next on the project front.

If I can't find exactly what I have in mind ... I'll make it ... it may take a while to "nail it", but things eventually pan out.
