Location: Surrey, BC, Canada

Interests: Wrenching, machining, fabrication, automatic transmission tech and rebuilding.

How did I find you: Googling “car tycoon” type games.

About: 49yo, auto tech for my entire career.

I really like the premise of this game. Would love it if it actually dealt more in depth with camshaft profiles, lift, duration, overlap, base circle, etc…but then it would cease to be a game and become an engineering simulator.

I love it so far for what it is. Looking forward to the tycoon aspect, cuz my designs will stand the world on it’s ear!

Cheers all!

Occupation: Former computer repair tech, now a call center supervisor

Location: Seattle area (WA state)

Interests: Hiking, camping, writing, light wrenching (bolt-on mods and maintenance), hockey.

Would have also had headers if the supposed “small car AMC” headers that I bought weren’t actually large car headers.

How did I find you: Trying to find the old game “Detroit” as abandonware. Got bored, looked at the Wikipedia page for it, and found a link to Automation.

About: Casual car-loving nerd who absolutely loves the premise of the game… and I’m hoping it takes “Detroit” so much farther. Which so far it’s doing.

About:

Currently studying economics in France, usually a student at the University of Oklahoma. I’ve been crazy about cars since I learned how to drive. Unfortunately no one in my immediate family works on them, but it’s something I’d love to get into someday. Hoping to trade in my Civic for a Miata once I get a real job. I have previous work experience in the automotive sector interning at a tier 1 supplier, and I know many people in the industry. Currently trying to make the most of my time in Europe. I’ve already hit the Paris Motor Show, and have a trip planned to visit the Porsche and Mercedes-Benz museums in Stuttgart. Any suggestion for great things to do in Europe will be appreciated!

Looking forward to talking with all of you, can’t wait to start participating in the community.

I’m originally from Northwestern Indiana then moved to Indianapolis to study Motorsports Engineering, though I now study Mechanical Engineering.
