ETCG1, The Story Continues..
I 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?
Honestly this is long overdue. My tool box has been overflowing for years and I've just ignored it, but lately it's getting harder and harder to open and close the drawers and I've had enough. It's time for a new tool box.
You might think I'm weird, but that would be nothing new, but I'm fascinated by the way cars and trucks smell. New, old, doesn't matter. I think the smell tells the story.
Don't get the wrong idea with this video. I'm not trying to say that the cars and trucks of old are better that what is made today. I'm just curious what will be considered 'classic' 20-40 years from now.
Some of you may have been to automotive auctions before. I have as well, but nothing like Barrett Jackson. It's on a level I haven't seen before.
After posting my video Analog vs Digital, I began to notice some things in the comments.
It seems that many of use learn through what we see and feel over abstract thought. I'm not saying mechanics can't be abstract thinkers, just that for the most part, it seemed that many of you learned this way.
