I became a car nut because Robert Goulet kept sneaking up on me during the workday and messing up my desk.

actually. I turned myself into a car nut.

I broke my leg after rolling a golf cart. Had nothing better to do for 6 weeks. So i read about my car on some forums, eventually joining werkz in 2004. From there just driving my car.

I have always liked cars since I can remember and always loved reading about them, my brother had a beetle at some point when i was young and I remember him working on it and watching him so that might have helped too.

I have always been interested in how things work mechanically (partly because my dad is an engineer) and used to play with Hot Wheels all the time when I was younger. Also played the video game Tokyo Extreme Racer 2 for Sega Dreamcast back in the day.

ive never really been a car nut (maybe because im a girl) but since i was a little kid growing up in the 90's i always LOVED the e36 model of bmw.. i guess maybe because then they were brand new then but even after i grew up and the newer looks started coming out i still had love for the e36 range.. so when i finally got my license my parents bought me one for my birthday

I've been a car nut from birth... by the age of two I could tell all the makes... and I'd notice every e30 on the road (partly b/c my dad's e30 318i was the first car I've ever seen)
