You may wonder how the Car Care Fanatic began?  Being a car guy, I have always been a person that friends, family and co-workers have always come to with questions regarding basic car care. Sometimes I felt as if I was like a broken record, constantly sharing tips, tricks, or other things which to me was basic knowledge with anyone that would listen.

In an effort to help as many people as possible… Car Care Fanatic was born.

As mentioned above, the goal is to make a one stop resource for how to’s on performing basic car care and get tool and product recommendations to help make the car care process easier.  Consider it Car Care 101 if you will.

Everything I know about cars has been either self taught or from mentors and friends.  From restoring my classic Chevy, to modifying my daily commuter or building purpose built race cars, I have picked up an assortment of tips and tricks along the way.

I truly hope you enjoy the site and find it useful in your endevours.
