ETCG1, The Story Continues..

About ETCG1

ETCG1 round Logo 250I started the ETCG1 channel about a year or so after starting the EricTheCarGuy channel.  I did this for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I needed a place where I could post 'non-repair' videos that related to EricTheCarGuy, it became apparent early on that my audience on EricTheCarGuy were interested in repair videos only so to accommodate them and fill the need for video topics outside of repair ETCG1 was born.  The second reason is that it became apparent that many viewers had questions about becoming professional technicians and they wanted to learn what it was like to work in the field, they also seemed interested in my opinions and experiences that developed while working as a technician.  ETCG1 has become something of a 'soapbox' for me to share these thoughts and ideas and it gives me the opportunity to respond to some of the questions I get about the auto repair industry.  ETCG1 is also a place where you can learn a little more about what it is to be and work as EricTheCarGuy, best job in the world if you asked me.  Why not watch a few videos and let me know what YOU think?

In October 2016 my dad gave me his 1990 Chevy C1500 Sport truck. I could not have been happier. To say I love this truck would be a gross understatement. Not only do I love the way it looks, but I also associate it with my dad who I love very much.

You Think Youre a Fast Driver But Youre Probably Not

Recently, thanks to my friends at Shell, I went to Bondurant Racing School in Phoenix AZ. To say it was an educational experience is a gross understatement.

When You See Your Car on TV or in a Movie

Recently a viewer told me about a 1979 Fairmont he saw on Stranger Things. I got really excited about that as I often do when I see one of my cars on TV or in a Movie. It almost feels like I'm a part of the story, or at least I feel more connected to it.
