Why Mechanics Drive Junk Cars -ETCG1

This topic was suggested by forum member Brink5. It’s a great question and I admit that I’m guilty of this myself. For some reason I’m happier driving a junky old car over a new whatever. My reasons are simple and I state them in the video. I’ve also noticed this trend in many other mechanics and technicians. I’d love to hear your input as well. Are we wrong in this, or do mechanics really drive junk?

Thanks for watching.

My good friend Charles Sanville aka HumbleMechanic and I were in Atlanta not long ago. On one of our drives we decided to discuss the differences between working on German vs Japanese cars. An interesting discussion for sure. I look forward to your comments.
