Hello to everyone from Florida! Here is a little about me.

Name: Matt or “Hat” (I always wear a hat)

Age: 31

Location: Northeast Florida, USA

Interests: Cars, racing,working on cars, games

Vehicles Currently Owned: I currently own a 1964 Ford Falcon “Prostreet” and a 09 Honda fit as my daily driver. (American Ford Falcon)

Dream Garage Vehicles: Toyota corolla TE21, 1959 Cadillac Coupe Deville, 1964 ford Fairlane Thunderbolt 427, and an original style Morris Mini or Cooper from the 1960’s, all 4 highly modified of course.

Previous Vehicles Owned: Starting with my first car: 1970 VW beetle, 1995 chevy S10, 1963 Chevy Nova SS, 1968 VW Notchback, 2006 Mini cooper S, 1995 Mazda Mx5, 1963 VW beetle, 2009 Honda Fit, 1964 Ford Falcon “Prostreet”.

How did you find us? I played a car game online a while back called “Motor City Online”. It was a great game but slightly ahead of it’s time as it struggled with online server issues and the fact most peoples PC’s at the time were not really meant for high-end online gaming. So…I was surfing the web to try and find some sort of PC car game to play and stumbled across this. Yay!

About: I am what I like to call a car enthusiast. I like all sorts of cars from the old to the new and from the domestic to the imports. If it is a good car then I can show respect. However I do have my favorites. I also like to work on cars and build projects with my father as a hobby. We recently finished a 6 year project turning an old rusty 1970 Ford Maverick into a ground pounding prostreet to the streets with. hahaha

Here is the Maverick that is finished, and the Falcon that is still being worked on.

For my 1,000th post, I’ve decided to finally introduce myself (properly) to the forums.

Name: Jack

Occupation: Renewable Energy Technician

Location: I am originally from Smolensk, Russia, but have since moved to the East Coast of the US.

Interests: Motorsports, cars, computers and electronics, hockey.

Vehicles Currently Owned: I have a 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT SL, which I use as my daily driver. I also have a 1994 Mercedes-Benz S600, which is garaged, and will probably stay that way for quite a long time.

Dream Garage Vehicles: This is really asking for a long list, but I will try to keep it as short as possible.

Classics:
[ul]]1965 Jaguar E-Type/:m]
]1966 Shelby Cobra 427 Super Snake/:m]
]1967 Alfa Romeo Spider/:m]
]1970 Ford Mustang Boss 429/:m]
]1989 Ferrari F40/:m][/ul]

Modern Cars
[ul]]1997 McLaren F1/:m]
]2014 Alfa Romeo 4C/:m]
]2014 Koenigsegg One:1/:m]
]2014 McLaren P1/:m]
]2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat/:m][/ul]

Previous Vehicles of Interest: I had a 1983 Toyota Camry for a while, but basically ran it into the ground.

How did you find us? I was looking for an in-depth car tycoon game, and I am happy to say that what I found greatly exceeded my expectations.

About:

I’ve always been a car person. Always. From the moment my father let me “drive” his Audi, up to this day, I have been in awe of the concept of internal combustion, and the wonderful machines that have resulted from it. There is no better feeling that to get in a car, regardless if it is a high-performance sports car, or the most sluggish of ecoboxes, and drive as it was meant to be driven. I have had a lifelong fascination with cars, their engines, and how it all works together to operate the best type of transportation on this planet. I have always wanted a game like Automation to exist, especially as I still was very disappointed by games like Detroit and Car Tycoon. When I found that this game existed, I just had to buy it on the spot. I don’t do much, at least officially, to help this game. I am not a beta-tester, and certainly not a moderator or developer. But I do try to stay active on the forums, and if someone needs help with something, I will gladly assist them. I hope that, in the future, I can not only help make this great community what it is, but also do whatever I can to contribute to the success of Automation.

About:

I’ve always dreamed of restoring a classic muscle car. Someday, I hope to make that dream come true. After seeing the video above, I decided to try the demo for myself. Once I started playing around with it and trying the scenarios, I was hooked! So I’ve already pre-ordered and I plan on eventually taking part in some of the challenges posted here.

I do have a decent background in software development and testing. I would be happy to offer whatever services I can provide to assist in making this game as awesome as possible!
