Re: Introductions

Name: Janne

Occupation: Salesman

Location: Turku, Finland

Interests: Cars, games, history, movies, sports

Cars previously owned: My first car was a rear-engined Skoda with 52 horsepower. Since then I have had far too many cars to list. Saab Turbos, Alfa Romeos, 4WD Audis, a Porsche 911 as highlights. But also many humble econo-cars like a Nissan Sunny.

Cars currently owned: Ford Puma (can't get better handling for 5x the money), Alfa Romeo 75 (lovely twin cam and very exotic suspension), VW Jetta mk2 (200 hp+ diesel mega build, now selling for parts)

Dream Cars: Porsche 356 Carrera Speedster, Lamborghini Miura, Lotus Esprit Turbo, Alfa Romeo SZ, RUF RCT Evo, Renault-Alpines, Abarth Coupes of the late '50s to early '60s.

How I found Automation?: A pop-up on Steam. The best one ever, I'm having such a blast building my dream cars!


I've been drawing/designing cars since I was a little kid - I must have done 3000+ sketches total. I was also a total car geek from 4 years old an up. When I couldn't even write full sentences, I could already tell how many horsepower such and such Porsche had. When I grew up, I switched to working on real cars. Since I've done many performance modifications and also a little restoration work. I'm contemplating on starting another business in the future - I was an enterpreneur in the past. Now I'm fighting some challenging health issues and laying low so to speak, working only part time. When I have the resources, I will be doing a semi-restoration on a '85 Alfa Romeo 75 which I plan to use as a daily driver in the summer time and hopefully take a trip to Italy in as well. Currently I spend far too much time doing Automation car designs and roleplaying the shit out of this forum! Currently the average time spent on a single car model I post on my company topic is 10 hours+. So I need to get out more :)

Here's my company link if anyone's interested: viewtopic.php?f=35&t=7310

How I Heard About Automation: The Smoking Tire. I thought it looked interesting, so I checked it out. And now, I've logged hundreds (if not thousands) of hours simulating the car company of my dreams. $30 well spent, in my opinion.

About: I'm an 18 year old college student who wants to become an automotive engineer, since I've been into cars almost since day 1 (car was the first word I ever said, no joke). I'm not the best with people, but I'll talk cars to anyone with enough patience to tolerate my rambling. I'm also an avid gamer, and study meteorology on the side. Congrats to anyone who actually read through everything.
