Do you have a humorous automotive story to share?

This is a more light-hearted question for you. Do you have a humorous automotive story to share? Something clean of course. Something like, you either asked someone or someone asked you to pick up some headlight fluid or a muffler bearings while at the Car Parts Store since you were out? As for me, one story that pops up once in a while was that when I was much younger and attending the local junior college, I worked in an Auto Parts Store here in Florida. It was an extremely busy Saturday and…See More

What would you consider the greatest innovation in your own automotive history?

What would you consider the greatest innovation in your own automotive history? What is that one or two things that you have benefited from directly? I know, not a grand set of questions, but just something to keep the juices flowing. I would say for myself, two things. The first would be Air Conditioning since I live here in Florida. The second would most likely be Cruse Control. It does make long trips that much nicer for myself and usually for the car.Thanks and have a great one!!DarrenSee More

Who was your greatest influence in developing your car passion?

Good day everyone. I have another questions for today. Who was your greatest influence in developing your car passion? Was this person a parent, sibling, aunt or uncle, friend, mechanic or someone else altogether? What impact do you think this individual, or even group, have on your future?I think my Uncle Dave was probably my first and biggest influence. I was quite young, probably four or five years old when this started. He had all of the car magazines, car sales papers and talked about all…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
Been listening to Dan Miller for a few years. Attended the CWE class, which was a great experience.

Also love to hear the advice and conversation here on 48Days.net. What great support that is here!!
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Employee and working on self-employment. No side-income generation yet, but hopeful and willing to work towards that end.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
To enjoy life and be an example to our kids. I enjoy cars, history and multimedia. Cars as my passion has been put off and away for far too long. I have finally put together a concept which is moving forward slowly, but at least it is moving in the right direction.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
To reach my goal of working and living my passion along with my family. To gain more time with my family and set an example to our children and others, that they can do the same. I would like to become an authority when it comes to automotive history. Notice I said "an" and not "the". Not exactly sure where this will lead at this moment, but am happy to travel down this road.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Listening to stories, then asking the right questions to go deeper. I enjoy the story teller process for myself and others.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.CarStorian.com
More than one website?
http://www.lifeandlatitudes.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
For CarStorian, This is home to Car Stories that mingle with your family stories. It is a place where we hope you will be entertained and informed. This will be a great place to go before and after a car show, a place to share your tales with your family and friends. Perhaps your memory will be reopened to times you and your family and friends rebuilt a part or all of your car. It may have been a time you were taught about old cars and how they worked and memories cherished with grandparents or someone special.

What is the one car you wish you still had?

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 3:54pm 2 Comments

This is just a fun question for the day. What is the one car you still wish you had?

Mine, the 1965 Pontiac GTO, of course.  It had a tri-power 389, M-21 four-speed manual transmission and was a whole lot of fun.

Darren, welcome to the Doing Drupal Websites group. Drupal is fun and powerful and definitely better learned among friends.

Thanks for your inspirational comment!  The older I get the more I'm realizing that life needs to be more about balance and what makes you happy rather than complete dedication to an income career.

Thanks, Darren. I hope the price is right. ;)

 

Staying at the top of your creativity is key. I generate a lot of ideas but end up tossing most as I develop them further. Good thing I have a lot!

 

The thing you'd likely enjoy there is the Wednesday and Friday features. Tips and techniques to help you connect, build, and engage with your community.

 

In the techniques section I talk a lot about using wordpress to the fullest with plugins, techniques to make it faster, etc.

 

If there's every anything I can do to help, let me know. 

 

Oh, I am adding a 7 day free subscription to the site. Should be live quickly.

My pleasure, Darren. I just launched a cool service to keep you motivated and inspired to blog consistently. Can you tell me what you think about http://needatopic.com? 

 

Members have been raving about it since I launched in January. 

 

If I can help, let me know.

That grown up comment made me laugh. :)

 

Good looking site. I would encourage you to blog at least once every week. If you do it less your community could think you forgot about them. Plus, if they're subscribed, they might forget who you are!
