Growing up in Chicago IL, I've been interested in Auto Mechanic since my dad and my brother start buying cars and they start fixing cars. My whole family is the same they like those stance cars that are the best thing that I ever seen in my life. I'm starting by learning things of part of cars that my dad tell me that are important like change the brakes , oil, change the wheels and all those things. I start learning a little bit when I was 10 or 11 years old. I'm really want to buy my car now and start tuning my own car.
