About ETCG1

ETCG1 checker Logo Broken small 2018 copyI started the ETCG1 channel about a year or so after starting the EricTheCarGuy channel.  I did this for a couple of reasons.  The first is that I needed a place where I could post 'non-repair' videos that related to EricTheCarGuy, it became apparent early on that my audience on EricTheCarGuy were interested in repair videos only so to accommodate them and fill the need for video topics outside of repair ETCG1 was born.  The second reason is that it became apparent that many viewers had questions about becoming professional technicians and they wanted to learn what it was like to work in the field, they also seemed interested in my opinions and experiences that developed while working as a technician.  ETCG1 has become something of a 'soapbox' for me to share these thoughts and ideas and it gives me the opportunity to respond to some of the questions I get about the auto repair industry.  ETCG1 is also a place where you can learn a little more about what it is to be and work as EricTheCarGuy, best job in the world if you asked me.  Why not watch a few videos and let me know what YOU think?

I get asked about this a lot, so I thought I would make this video covering some of the basics of what to look for when choosing an automotive school. It's an important decision for sure. It's a lot of money on a career that you might not be entirely sure about.

I was doing a little work in the shop the other day and it got me to thinking about this topic. As a technician, or even a DIY, you have to deal with technologies that may be beyond you. You do what you can to stay caught up and up to date, but sooner or later you're not going to want to do that anymore.

I'm really looking forward to the 2014 seasons of ETCG and ETCG1. 2013 was a banner year for both channels, and this year looks even better. Not only do I have some new equipment to play with, but I also have some new production vehicles to use that equipment on.

Well it's not technically the 'last' video that I'll post in 2013, but it is the last for ETCG1. It's also the last video that I've shot for the year. In it, I try to sum up some of my thoughts about this past year.

I still had a little money left over after buying the 1979 Ford Fairmont, so when an old friend of mine called up and asked if I wanted to buy his 1993 Acura Vigor for $500, I said sure. I was hoping that it would have a manual transmission.
