I don’t own a car yet, but I fancy driving one someday. So while I’m fairly dreaming about having my own wheels, I content myself with reading magazines or browse websites with lots of images of cars, big and small ones. I learn practical tips here and there about the best or expensive car such as Honda Civic while browsing the net. Even if I read about cars, I couldn’t tell between the technical specs of one car from another car. I simply compare their features and decide which car is better based on what appears on the pictures. So don’t expect someone like me to know about head gasket.
There are always friendly people from car shops in the city like those working in Los Angeles auto repair shops to entertain all my car queries if it happens that I already own a car. Ironically, I have no intention of buying a car in the next five years, not until the kids graduated from college. At least we don’t have to worry about paying expensive car repairs by then.
