About ETCG1

ETCG1 checker Logo Broken small 2018 copyI 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?

Where is Cameraman Brian

This question has come up a lot in the comments to some of my most recent videos. Last week Cameraman Brian stopped by the shop so that I could repair some of his camera equipment. I asked if he wouldn’t mind going on camera and talking about where he’s been this past year.

Hanging Out In Salvage Yards

Ever since I was a kid I’ve been hanging out in salvage yards. I love them. In fact, I love all things abandoned and forgotten. To me the stuff in salvage yards tell a story, and I never get tired of exploring those stories.

UTI Group Video

I teamed up with Bogie from All Girls Garage and Humble Mechanic on this one. UTI asked us to do a round table discussion about getting into and working in the auto repair industry. It’s a really great discussion and something I recommend you watch if you’re considering a career in the auto repair field.

What Happened to Air Tools

I started working as a professional technician in the early 90’s. At that time air tools ruled. My 1/4” air ratchet was my best friend that I used on just about every job. Now it hardly leaves the tool box. The reason, I’d rather ditch the air hose and use an electric tool instead.
