Track and Car enthusiast
Car 1 or Categories
Before we get to understanding of these beautiful prize goals of mine. I have to become a teacher or I guess if you already have knowledge about the automotive culture, a fellow car enthusiast giving you information you might have missed. Now there are over a hundred rare cars out there you might not know about or a car you might have seen driving that doesn't seem to fit the road. There is a reason you don't understand and it isn't because you're under a rock or boring, it is a whole different culture and lifestyle for automotive enthusiast like myself. As I described the car scene in a few of my articles you will only find those cars there being shown off or driven. Some of them are written about, but only in magazines someone like myself would pick up. There are modded cars, cars from different countries that still are built as if they drive in that country, cars that are built for people with disabilities just so they can live a life they love. For all these cars to be organized there has to be a place where only people who have the fascination for this life to enjoy. I want to help you understand where these cars come from.
50 Cars or less
There is a few missing stories due to the drive I have, because everything is still what it seems. That picture is from a cars and coffee I was supposed to write about, but why would I promote an event I don't even get paid from just inspiration? The reason being is due to the lack of purpose people have showing up there, now I am not saying no one there doesn't have a purpose being there. I will tell you I enjoy a lot of automotive events cars and coffee is one of them, but there is a few I've been to which I could spend hours writing about. I'd rather write about fifty cars that I have seen at these events across the USA now I will admit this is a correction ,because Arizona car culture decided to get a bit arrogant. People forget half of these cars aren't even made in America... So why would my dumb ass think that this was the best car culture.
EVERYTHING IS WHAT IT SEEMS TO BE
As humans we tend to have a thought process of everything is going to be alright which it will be but not how we want it to be. I am the perfect example for that and I know you are saying here he goes with this “I am the shit attitude”..... Well that is just your breath, read in your head not aloud. I only say I am the perfect example or atleast one of them is because I don’t go broke chasing attention, I am broke from investing in myself, networking , and purchasing race car related techniques and experiences to help me further my goal. I am not here to live in the past or sound like a broken record in fact I hate repeating myself anyway. I am moving on and explaining living a few years away from my thirty’s is where I want to be. I have a lot of hidden talents but hard work always beats talent and that is why I still work so much. I work so much I push people out of my life, because I never sleep. I like to be productive and the reason for that is my drive. You build a habit of productivity if you have large goals to achieve in life. I make it look easy though now because I recently learned not to give up and I will explain that now.
Vocal Did It Not Me
Vocal pushed me towards my dreams, they are the reason I am able to express my thoughts and problems. Vocal is the reason I have something to write about which is crazy, because I felt trapped in my mind. They gave me the opportunity to give me a professional title while people couldn't take my dreams seriously. They are the reason people are switching up on me and agreeing with my intelligence and dreams.
More Than Just Luck
So in the "Racing Mentor" I mentioned entering car giveaways as a way of producing a race car. I had a chance to chat with 80EIGHTY about how it all got started and what made them have the idea offer chances to giveaway beautiful vehicles like that Ferrari 488GTB in the picture. When you enter any giveaway it comes with a post card with the vehicle that is being given away on the front.
The Racing Mentor
I referenced Jess in the story " Why being a track/enthusiast makes me happy" and I will touch on a few points why she is part of the process.Her book she wrote "Get Paid To Race" describes and list the proper steps it takes to get a sponsorship. If you are asking if I emailed Vocal to apologize about the slander in the story "Passion vs. Dedication"... I did and they responded with "there was no slander". The reason being they understand I am passionate about writing and race cars. I don't have to explain to them something they hear everyday when someone is expressing themselves through their work.
Building a Healthy Relationship with Failure
It is one thing to make this journey solo, but even failure can push you towards people who can be a positive impact in your life. This story is still connected to this whole adventure so don't think we are off track. We are about to enter a turn with someone else who I see as not just a coach, but someone who knows how to keep pushing when times get tough. Meet the man, the myth, the Memo Calderon. Born in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and now resides in Washington, so yes I met him in Washington State. He is a certified Racecar Technician, he met me while I had the lack of track knowledge and had a smart mouth even though I still do. He called me out so many times and I was like one of these days I will show him on the track. One month later my Acura was totaled, I was looking like a straight fool! He wasn't disappointed in the accident he was more disappointed in the way it happened and how I handled the situation. This is where a guy who has the most bad ass life shows me it is okay to fail.
