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?

For some time now the views on my videos have been on the decline. I believe there is more than one reason for this. In part I think it's because I've changed my format over the past couple of years. In addition to that, YouTube has made changes that have made it harder for my subscribers to know when I've put out a new video.

About 2 months ago I bought a new Snap-on KRL1023 Tool box. I shot a video of the box before I put any tools in it. Many of you asked for a new tool box tour to see how I set things up. Here's that video.

Automotive Intimacy = Automotive Knowledge. That's an interesting phrase.

Lately I've been thinking a lot more about how I repair vehicles and I think that is in large part due to the fact that I'm in the process re-engineeirng a vehicle.

On March 17-19, 2017 I had the pleasure of attending the first Caffeine and Octane on the Beach. It might just be an annual thing from what I experienced. It was an amazing show, and there was a line of cars across the bridge coming into the island on Saturday with people trying to get to the show. By my measure, that’s a successful event.
