Car Guys and Car Girls of high school: unite! Most high schools had ‘em and I asked you for your fondest memories of them. Heck, most of the time That Car Guy was you. Color me surprised, and by surprised I mean not at all.

From great memories of wrenching to people who wrecked expensive gifts from Mommy and Daddy like it was the only job they had, you guys sure gave me some great stories.

Makes me wish my high school was more interesting. We didn’t even have Auto Shop class!

[Welcome back to Countersteer, where we ask you to tell us your greatest stories of success and failure, then we pull the very best of them to share with the rest of the world.]
