Being into lots of different types of stuff is kind of an occupational hazard when you write an automotive blog like BangShift. Most times, I get to do stuff in dribs and drabs but this current week is a good one for gearhead coolness. With a couple days at the drags already under my belt and a night spent at a quarter mile asphalt oval watching racers bang fenders also checked off the list, the American LeMans Series race looms in the future for Friday. I can’t claim to be the biggest road racing and stock car racing guy in the world but I do love hanging out and watching the action. I think lots of people are of the same mind set but I know lots of others are into their own certain slice of the hobby and not much else. I’m the guy who owns a vintage wrecker and is in the midst of screwing together a pro touring themed sedan.
This question is not intended to be taken as a shot at guys who are into specific stuff. For instance if you are a muscle car guy and don’t give a flying crap about anything else, no sweat. Maybe you’re a drag racer who also follows NASCAR or the World Rally Championship. If you are into a specific part of this hobby or the gearhead world in general, what is it?
Today’s question of the day: Are you a gearhead who’s into many different aspects of the hobby or do you have specific tastes and interests?
