I respect your comment...I think all of us are guilty of a little "ribbing," we just need to be careful it doesn't kill the enthusiasm for being around the car culture. To me, that's the whole point of what the author is trying to get across. Old dogs can learn new tricks, despite what the saying says. 🙂
Then lucky for you. Your car community must be all like-minded and care about the same things. I would love to be that out of touch and isolated as to be completely oblivious that our hobby has a problem with gatekeeping, snobbery and all around elitism. What the real waste of time is the fact that I even spent the time responding to you.
