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?
I've been posting videos to YouTube for a long time. 8 years at the time of this posting. In that time I've seen a lot of YouTubers come and go. I want to be one of those YouTubers that sticks around for a while. After all, I love this job.
I’ve been working out of my old tool box for almost 20 years. It was a great tool box, but it was time to move on. I talk about the need for this in one of my recent videos.
Sometimes I just want to go to the shop and work. Work on cars that is, not videos. Since I've become EricTheCarGuy, every time I go to the shop it's a new opportunity to make videos, which is how I make my living. However, some days I just want to go into the shop with no cameras and just work.
In it I talked about the differences in vehicle design between now and vehicles made in the past. Your response to this video was overwhelming and I've tallied the results here in this video.
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.
