Cars are complex machines and the great advantage they have over, say, cribbage, is it would take a lifetime to amass every mechanical, cosmetic and driving skill. We are all students. What automotive skill do you most want to learn?

Often the best part of this job is getting to drive very different cars under widely varying conditions. Whether it's off road in a Raptor or around the track in an Audi R8 V10 we log a lot of miles.

What I haven't done, personally, is put a car stunt man-style up on two wheels... at least not intentionally. It's called the Ski and it's dangerous and requires patience and certain skills. But it can't be that hard, right? It also looks awesome and makes it much easier to drive through narrow alleyways when pursued by bad guys/law enforcement. I gotta do that one day.
