After reading my father’s article a couple of weeks ago, it made me realize what little experience I have working on cars. It’s no secret I love to drive them, but actually getting out a wrench and working on a car myself is an entirely different ballgame. I have many reservations about working on my own car, fear of breaking an expensive part, fear of not having the right tools, fear of not knowing what to do, and fear of having to have the car towed to the shop because I screwed something up (which will inevitably cost an arm and a leg). And if I’m being honest, I never really want to devote the time to it when I could be out and about doing something which I deemed to be more fun. As time goes on, however, I’m becoming increasingly more curious about what I’m capable of and have started dipping my toes in to the world of automotive maintenance.
