I watched a lot of WRC and JTCC in the 90s, and played the first four Gran Turismos.

My interest in cars faded over time, but I married a car guy and now I'm more interested than ever.

Pretty much the same w/o JTCC and me being gay. My father bought PlayStation for "me" when I was 5. We both played Colin McRae and Gran Turismo to death. Loved WRC up to 2004, 2005 before it went to absolute shit.

I'm the same, apparently I was always into cars as a child. I got a PSX and the original Gran Turismo for my 8th birthday and I think it spiralled from there. I remember having sleepovers with my mates in high school and we did the endurance races between us, then we all got our own cars later and still try to do as much together with them as we can.

For me, it obviously started with the very first Fast & Furious movie. I was around 8 years of age at the time of it's initial release.

It wasn't until the PS2 days when I picked up a copy of Midnight Club 3 and played the absolute shit out of it where my interest started, also was introduced to NFSU2 at my friends house, and also played the absolute shit out of that game when I bought myself a copy.

Fast forward a few years, just bought myself my first decent car after owning a shitty base model ek civic hatchback for around 7 years.

(Not my car in pic, mines milano red, mines also stock and boring at this stage)

Started with hot wheels when I was a toddler. That progressed to 1/25 scale plastic models, started those when I was 8, built 45 of them by the time I was 14, still build the occasional one at 25.

Bought a 1985 Honda 3 wheeler when I was 13 for $100 and completely rebuilt it

When i was 14 my Grandfather bought me a rusted out 1985 f150 with a 351w to haul firewood around the property (60 acre farm) lots of tinkering on that, and learned to drive pretty hectically on dirt roads with it too

Between ages 16 - 25 I've now bought/sold/traded/fixed up/rebuilt/scrapped over 60 vehicles and atvs/motorcyles

This is an obscure one. I started drifting with a buddy on GTA SA. That slowly got me more into drifting, then into cars altogether. Years before that, I got my first taste of JDM classics by looking up what the game's cars were based on. I was reading about Skylines and why they weren't legal for import despite not really caring about cars. Weird game to spawn a love of cars from, but GTA SA been the shit mane.

Here's an example of a drift video

I was always into skating, BMX, etc. which often leads to cars. My dad also drove a truck which I aspired to do as a kid. It seems like those kinds of seeds are usually already planted in us.

my 1400 bucks gets me a 1994 base model eclipse with a manual transmission

Man when I started getting the hang of that manual trans I thought I was hot shit. It absolutely turned my life around and gave me a lot of confidence. Started dating girls and doing generally normie shit like having friends. I'd probably have killed myself by now if I hadn't discovered the magic of the open road.

Matchbox cars and watching my dad work on the family shitbox, and later learning to work on it myself from a young age. When you don't have much money you learn real quick what it takes to keep a car on the road because towing is expensive and mechanics are no cheaper.

i had always loved playing with hot wheels and the short tracks i could make but i wasn't incredibly interested in cars. i even had a racing game which i couldn't really get past the beginning bit because i was quite young but i enjoyed a lotus in that game. then when i was 20 i started playing need for speed shift and my interest in cars exploded. only gotten stronger since. as well it's probably not a coincidence i really enjoy modern lotus cars now considering i would rather get a classic car than any modern one. my taste in cars never changed either it's always been late 60's and early 70's mainly

Dad use to play hot pursuit and gran turismo 1 on PlayStation. Just picked it up from there I guess with gran turismo 2. I specifically remember my Vector, RUF and TVR Cerbera Speed 12 being my quickest cars on Red Rocks. Ever since, I've been in love

Absolutely no interest until I got my licence. Then I was interested in how it all worked and started wrenching.

Wished I knew how much I loved it earlier. Got muh vee ayte land barge now and couldn't be happier with it. Needs an exhaust and a tune though.

I really don't know where my interest in cars came from, my mother told me my first word was "cars" and my father was into NASCAR and Indy, so one of my very early memories are from me trying to play Indycar Racing II when i was around 3 years old.

As a little boy I really liked all sorts of classic cars because I thought they were cool, but my love for cars started when I was coming close to getting my license. Looking for a car to buy got me really really interested in cars.

I had hundreds of hot wheels as a kid but don't feel that at the time I was actually that interested in cars. Maybe just as into cars as a little kid could be?

When I was three years old I got a huge basket of hot wheels and matchbox cars.

I had a white Baja truck that had mud streaks up the side that I called "Dirty Dog"

Eventually I got nfs hot pursuit 2 and then most wanted and the rest is history
