Back in the day Men knew how to handle their cars because all they were was an engine, drivetrain, transmission and four wheels. Most didn’t have AC or even power steering. You hit the gas and it would go. Here’s a 1968 Dodge Charger R/T. My favorite no frills car of all time.
One thing that makes a man a man and drives the chicks crazy is a guy who can get his hands dirty under the hood. (Take it easy fellas. I’m talking about cars and thats a whole ‘nother ManLaw) Women love a man who can take care of things themselves without the assistance of your neighborhood mechanic. I’m not saying you have to be able to change a transmission, do body work or anything crazy like that. Now all the modern cars are much harder to do bigger jobs at home because the computers are just too complicatied without a specialist’s touch.
Just learn the simple things like changing your own oil, replacing your battery or alternator and making sure the fluids full and tire pressure is always correct. You save gas, money and gain style points as well. If you’ve never opened your hood before all the info you need is in the manual of your car or google your problem and troubleshoot.
All you need is a good set of tools and some ingenuity. You never know when you’re stuck on the road with no mechanics in sight. You’re girl will love it and it will make you feel like a man.
