Cars are fun on their own, but what’s the point if you can’t share them with other people? Have good discussions? Share a laugh about head gaskets?

Last week, I asked you guys about which car cultures were the most fun to be a part of. Which have the people with the best sense of humor? Who is most welcoming? No snobbery allowed!

I think besides the Volvo crowd I mentioned last week, track day people are also some of the best. After I royally screwed up my first track day and spun off course, I separated my back left tire from the rim. I got towed back to the pits, filled with shame.

Some very helpful people came by and kindly reassured me that everyone spins off at least once, helped me jack my car up and swapped on the spare wheel with an impact wrench they’d brought. Which was way easier than doing it with a tire iron myself!
