My name is Brandon Watt, and I’ve been interested in cars since I was a kid. My father was subscribed to well-known automobile magazines and I read them constantly. There was no Internet at the time, so I collected the best articles in a special folder. My folder contained the most useful information on automotive topics. I tried to keep as many notes on how to repair and upgrade cars as possible.
Nowadays, when I search for particular information on cars on the Internet, I can’t find it. All articles that I managed to find lacked expertise or were similar to the guide from the ’80s. I realized that it is hard to find easy to understand information for the novice drivers. So I came up with the idea to create my own website dedicated to vehicle repair, tuning, and maintenance. The website was originally created as a hobby to help car enthusiasts like me.
I got a bachelor’s degree in Automotive Technology and worked in a private car workshop. I have two cars that have been completely upgraded with my own hands. So I successfully put all my knowledge into practice.
I constantly learning something new and am grateful to my teachers:
