Making vast, sweeping generalizations about wildly diverse groups of people is rarely a good idea, but I'm going to do it anyway: gearheads are good people. Sure, car people can be clickish, argumentative, stubborn, and pedantic, but every time we've reported on or put a call out to our readers to help someone in need, they've come through with genuine grace and generosity. I'm hoping we can do it again.
