Introducing: The Two Twenty One Car Series

Say what!? A car series? Heck yeah, people. The Two Twenty One Car Series starts next Monday. Get excited.

What’s this all about? Well, it’s mostly going to involve photos of me lounging on top of cars in scantily clad bikinis while working on small DIY projects. Hah. Just kidding. That’ll never happen.

I decided to do this car series to educate my fellow female brethren on car care and maintenance– stuff you can do in your driveway with minimal tools. Brad knows WAY more about cars than me, and I could depend on him to take care of everything car related for me but I don’t want to be that girl who relies on her man or another man (mechanic) to fix everything. Think Rosie the Riveter, mechanic style.

How am I qualified to host this series topic? I know a fair amount about car care and maintenance through my experiences with my cars– how to check the oil, add oil, check brake fluid, add brake fluid, add washer fluid, check coolant, add coolant, check tire pressure, add air to tires, add air to air shocks, jump a car, remove spark plugs, change wiper blades, how to find out if a battery isn’t charging, determine if a turn signal or taillight is about to go out, and I know how to troubleshoot some minor problems.

Where did all of my car knowledge originate from? Brad and I come from car families. Brad’s dad built and raced mud drags and sand drags, and my dad built and raced funny cars and dragsters. That, and between Brad and I we own 6 vehicles. Yes, 6 (s-i-x). More on that tomorrow.

So here’s the deal. All of next week I’ll be posting about car related things– I may even throw in a video. Gasp. I have a lot more post topics written down so I’d like to continue the car series as a weekly thing after next week. If there’s something car specific you’d like to know, leave a comment below.

Stop by tomorrow to read about Brad and I’s vehicles and our family histories with cars and other motor vehicles. Pictures included.

P.S. A big thank you to my best blog buddy, Erin, for whipping up the car series graphic for me.

  1. This is a great idea for a series! I know a few things (changing headlight light bulbs and sort of know how to do an oil change) but I always wished I knew more.

  2. I think cars are the most stressful things. Thankfully I have never had car issues, but I still stress that it may happen and I’ll be stuck… bc I’m crazy. haha So this series is perfect for me!!! Can’t wait 🙂 xx Liz Marie

  3. What a great idea!! My car is in need of some serious love at the moment, can’t wait to see what you’ll be sharing! 🙂

  4. What a great idea! Can’t wait to follow along…I know a little about cars, but I’m always eager to learn more!

  5. Hello,

    I am really looking forward to this! I love learning about car care! Jenny

  6. Awesome! I’ve always wanted to do a car series! My dad wouldn’t let me have my pickup truck when I was 16 until I could do all the maintenance myself and I’ve always wanted to share that info with other ladies! Can’t wait to read it!

  7. What a great idea! Can’t wait to read it and learn some things! 🙂

    Have a great day!

  8. So cool! I know some basics as well, as my daddy was a mechanic of cars and airplanes. It never hurts to brush up or I may learn something new ; ) It is so nice to be able to do the little stuff yourself anyway, even if you have a dependable guy. Feels good to be self-reliant. Thank you so much for doing this series.

  9. What… SIX cars?! How did I not know this?? Well I have to say I’m SUPER excited about this series! Plus your logo is fabulous {giggle}.

  10. Oh my gosh I am so excited for this! I pride myself on being independent but when it comes to cars I’m helpless and it frustrates me so much!
    I had a terrible flat a few years ago in the middle of a blizzard, the kind where the rubber melts onto the rim because you drove on it for 4 blocks. I called a friend who came to help but she didn’t know how to change a tire either so called my cousins who also didn’t know how, and they had to call a friend to do it. Talk about helpless!
    I’m ready to be educated!

  11. Brilliant idea indeed! Very thoughtful and wonderful of you to post a car-related series. It’s like a woman-to-woman mechanic 101! This would be very helpful for moms and wives and even for just about every female out there who’d like to know more about vehicles right from the perspective of another female! Kudos!
