So the car scene is pretty big on the internet and for the most part we all can say we love cars and all that etc. However a lot of "car people" like to talk sh*t on the internet and I'm noticing a lot more. People are always rambling about numbers and basing how good a car is against another based on track times. "Oh that car costs twice as much as X and it's slower so it's sh*t" "No manual, no buy" "Manuals are dated, won't make you win on a track" etc. And everybody's opinion is fact, you can't tell them sh*t. Even if they're tweens who haven't even sat behind a steering wheel before. I've had people tell me this car sucks because [insert some sh*t cut n pasted from a crappy car magazine website article]. It's annoying as sh*t.
I'm going to be learning how to drive and I've always loved cars. And it's always been as simple as that. I just love cars. I love the variety, going on trips, the details, the engineering. The experience. I couldn't give any less of a sh*t about track times. I don't know, it takes a lot for me to hate a car, especially if I haven't driven it before let alone seen it in the flesh.
Does anybody else feel the same? And sort of like the non-car people thread, I want you to post some of dumbest stuff you've heard/read supposed "car people" say.
