Bored.. saw this on another forum, thought what the hell, why not?

So what were you into before you got into autos, and why you got into autos!


I was into anything with wings.. I could pick any plane out of the sky and identify it by the time i was 4 or 5, and knew i wanted to go to a military academy when i was 6 or 7; but my dad quickly fixed that by getting me a go-kart at 7 or 8 years old.. by the time i was in middle school, i met some kid who'd lived in Britain for 5 years who did nothing but talk about cars, (one of my best friends now), next thing i knew that was all we cared about, went to the vette show at carlisle for the first time when i was 14, but i was hooked on vettes long before that :lol:

Possibly computers, and I still am. I've been into cars since I was a little kid though. BMWs are a more recent obsession; I used to be all GM, mostly Oldsmobile. However, up until the 5th gen, most domestics have left much to be desired in built quality. The 3rd gen f-bodies, which I really looked into during my year in high school, are also very slow and plagued with reliability problems. I never liked the 4th gens as much and I'm certainly not going with ford :p So I eventually ended up with my 540i/6 which put down 30 whp more than a 2003 Mustang GT with an exhaust at the same dyno. I certainly wouldn't turn down a terminator.

I was into music and playing the guitar. I still enjoy music and have my guitar, but I don't play anymore. I had a whole row of effects pedals, played in the high school talent show, had a casual band, etc. Then I found the joy of Camaro.

Actually, when I was 16, I had money saved up for one of two things: an IROC-Z or a Marshall full stack. I went with the IROC and the rest is history.

This isn't mine, just a picture I found online. Mine has EMG's instead of the jackson hums:

Little League Baseball - and all things baseball. Although I do remember watching ABC's Wide World of Sports quite a bit. They covered NASCAR back then, so while not cars specifically, racing was cool. My favorite cartoon was/is Speed Racer (the origninal).

Dubbya dubbya two solider...

Yeah, really loved the stuff. Especially aircraft. That evolved into mobile armor; and then cars.. natural evolution. Then I asked about the old cars to my mom and dad at around ten and then got a bible full of stories of 6cyl 69 camaro runs, 76 stripper I6 Camaros.. and my dad's 79 Z/28.

And I've been a camaro man ever since.. just couldn't justify a purchase as a first or second vehicle to the 'rents who were buying them. :(

It's also why I'm working my FAA liscenses. I love engines.. and I love av gas exhaust. Y'all should try it sometime.

I was born right into cars and trucks. Not something I chose, just most baby boys get cars and trucks and baby girls get dolls and other stuff. I grew up playing car games on playstation and collecting hot wheels.

It wasn't until middle school that I faded away and turned super nerd. I played MTG religiously, and went year and a half unbeaten playing anywhere from 5-10 games a day until I just stopped. Around 8th grade I got into guitar, played in a few bands and enjoyed the early years of highschool. Got a license and couldn't get into the whole tuner scene...now I'm here.

Drums and percussion. That is still my #1 passion. Playing baseball and surfing was something I did for several years. I also collect Star Wars toys.
