Hello everyone, I have always liked cars but never learned a whole lot about them. My father passed away when I was young and I never got learn about them from him. Anyways, some of my friends are "gear heads" and talk about things that I never understood such as motor sizes from hot rods. Like big block 4xx or small block 3xx, things like that. Also things about camshafts/crankshafts etc. I was wondering if you had any knowledge of books or anything I could look into buying to help me? Even better would be some free resources to learn all about cars. Obviously a site like this will be very beneficial, but I was hoping to find other resources to help me out.
I want to learn about all of this and be able to participate in discussions. I would ask my friends but I dont think they would be too helpful as they would expect me to know things already.
Any information or suggestions would be great. I have looked on Amazon and such but don't know exactly what to look for subject wise. Hopefully I can find a cheaper book or something. Thanks
