Name: Blaine Murphy

Occupation: Computer Engineering student

Location: Detroit Michigan; United States. Originally from Seattle Washington; United States.

Interests: Cars, Computers, Electronics, Music, Photography, Rowing, Skiing

Vehicles Owned: 2006 Scion xB, 1967 Pontiac Bonneville

Dream Garage: 1967 Pontiac Bonneville, 2016 Subaru Impreza 2.5i hatch, 1977 / '78 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am SE, BMW E28 M5, 1986 Ford F250 w/ IH Diesel and a 4-on-the-floor

How Did You Find Us? The game was recommended to me by my friend Cody, a fellow student and gearhead. I can’t speak for how he originally found it.

About Me:
I grew up in the mountains on the West coast of the United States, the youngest in a family of four kids. My family, immediate and extended, are avid outdoors types so from a very early age I picked up on biking, skiing, kayaking, rowing, etc. Also as a result, I picked up on cars, particularly good offroaders and snow cars. I don’t have any brand specific loyalty but if I did it would definitely be Subaru and its probably obvious why.

What I took to stronger than cars though was computers. My Dad gave me one of his old computers to use when I was only 7 and though initially slow to learn, using it mostly for games and silly drawings, I soon became an expert. By the time I was in middle school, I had that computer running Linux and got a personal laptop that I beta tested Windows 7 on and used extensively for programming experiments and graphics work.

High school was a dark age I don’t care to remember but one of the major things I took away from high school was a passion for photography after taking a class on black-and-white photography which included the full chemical process. Since then I spend many weekends and off days walking around in the woods shooting scenes particularly landscapes and pattern / texture. Also during high school I discovered my passion for engineering when I joined a robotics team and did large amounts of a design and programming work.

My experience in robotics ended up introducing me to a small engineering school in the Motor City with a unique real-world educational program, so naturally given my passions, I went almost without consideration for other schools. I spend 6 months a year in school and the other 6 in industry. Its hell but its also worth it.

Currently age 20, forever alone :sweat:, taking classes, mentoring a local robotics team, and spend my spare time on pet projects, video games, car stuff, and playing bass guitar. I also love WWII era aircraft, cooking, beer, and a good cigar.

About: a dude who procrastinates too hard, often playing Automation, of undisclosed age.


Hey there. I’ve been playing Automation on and off for a bit now. After lurking in the forums for a while I figured I may contribute soon so I decided to register. I’m a pretty mediocre gamer, and while I am interested in cars I’m far off from your usual “car guy” and I still have quite a bit to learn. I don’t have much else I’d like to say that’s relevant, so I suppose this will have to do :stuck_out_tongue:


Name: Niveon (Niv)

Occupation: Full-time disabled

Location: Belgium

Interests: Long-term gaming commitments, drawing (poorly), writing (also poorly), cats

Vehicles Currently Owned: 2001 Mazda Demio (Mk. 1) 1.5L

Dream Garage Vehicles: Citroën SM, AMX Javelin, Bugatti 57SC Atlantic (swoon)

Previous Vehicles of Interest: Volkswagen-Karmann Golf I, Simca Millé, Citroën C1, Citroën Ami SUPER

Discovered: Through Steam entirely, I’m always on the lookout for any automotive interest games beyond just driving (but driving also, of course).


Resident Belgian, turning 30 this year (2017) with nothing more to do than general gaming and fiddling about with cars on Automation (1070 hours played at this point in time). Intimidated by the amount of detail people go into here, but trying my best- although I’m confident I’ll never get as good as 99% of you lot.

Long-time car enthusiast, early-days karter and attempted professional racing driver, before chronic health conditions put a swift end to that. Still enjoy owning, maintaining, and driving cars in as much of a capacity as I can, with a very clear preference for cars predating 1975.

I’ll maybe post up some of my own creations sometime, but as I said- I’m pretty intimidated by the attention to detail, skill, and effort you lot put into your cars.


I’m here for almost two years, but never wrote an introduction. There we go:

That’s all


I’m new to this forum. Name is Agatha Nakai (a.k.a Reiko Walker, Reiko’s Carbon Fibre Emolga at Car Throttle). I have been playing this game nearly for 2 years, and have been addicted to it since.

I’m a college student, and Indonesian. I have passion in cars, especially automotive design. Seeing cars beautifully made is like seeing a beautiful girl for me. But somehow, for now I prefer to be an Automotive Artist (the ones who made the liveries to be more specific or made anything cars related, let it be T-Shirts or other merchandises) or opening a Tuning Studio someday (like the Rauh-Welt Begriff thing). Unfortunately I don’t have a car right now, but I’d love to own a car someday, and of course it has to be manual, and reliable.

If you ask me what kind or type of cars I like, I like lots of them. Tuners, Muscles, Exotics, Off-Roads, as long as it looks good and performs good to me (tbh I prefer looks a bit more than performance at one point, let’s just say, 55% looks, 45% performance), I’m all for it.

And here in Automation, this game gives me chance to unleash my imagination and stuff like that, to think about what I want to build, what I want to express, etc. I’ve been designing cars for 2 years, so I kinda enjoy the game, a lot.

Nice to meet you all, have a nice day.
