If you enjoy car meets as much as I do, and have attended roughly a hundred of them too, I am pretty sure you are very familiar with these types of car guys you'll encounter at your usual car meet. Enjoy! :)
1) THE NEWBIE
To spot a newbie during a car night, just follow the million questions. These car guys are eager beavers when it comes to learning about their new ride so they wanna soak it all up like sponges. If you are a veteran car guy, it is your moral responsibility to teach a newbie the correct way of setting up his car. They are the future of the car scene. THEY. ARE. THE FUTURE. So mold their fresh minds with gentle hands. Like a new-born baby. Welcome to the car world, newbie!
2) THE BOMBA BOY
Equivalent to someone loving their own voice, bomba boys looove the sound of their engines. And honestly now, what's not to love? It's music!
3) MR. DJ
4) "MR. YABANG"
|Although not a "car guy," this YouTube sensation fits the essence of arrogance perfectly.|
This car guy claims his "tuned" car packs 400hp but when challenged to a race, it's almost his reflex to respond... "Stock lang sir!" and will start the delaying tactics by negotiating how many pluses he wants. Sus. And trust me, after hours and hours of negotiation, he's gonna decline anyway so don't even bother challenging him to a race next time.
5) THE GURU
But remember this, a stunning car don't always make a guru. What makes a true guru is his real passion for his machine and the knowledge he gained over the decades of being a car guy. A guru may have a bone stock car but won't have problems overhauling the engine blind-folded.
During a car night, all car questions are directed to this guy because he's a walking, talking, breathing Wiki-car-pedia and a nice guy to boot! Zero arrogance. Now that's a real guru to me. :)
