Christina Lam went from the sidelines to full-on track enthusiast in 8 simple steps.
I guess he must be a miata mechanic...
White wine at that...
Alfa: red wine
BMW: Anything from Ayinger
MG: Samuel Smith's India Ale, or maybe a gin and tonic?
I would think Ferrari. More wine cooler or Zima for a miata mechanic.
Miata seems to be a Yuengling to me. Great performance, low price.
I like to drink Molson XXX when i'm working on the MX6.
It's about as sophisticated as a hammer, and hits like one.
Thats boxed wine, no Ferrari driver would touch it....

5 30 packs of Pabst assisted my engine and transmission r&r on my Miata. I did not drink them by myself, I had plenty of help when the word got out that I was BBQ'ing and buying the suds.
I thought wine was the ingredient that got you to call that craigslist ad and drag home another project. Once you get to wrenching I'd skip the wine, though I sometimes wonder when I go back the next day and look at what I did.
Actually got one of those now. Must have skipped my Wheaties the day I bolted up my intake. Thing is leaking. Last night I got out my wrenches and discovered EVERY bolt was pretty lose. Oh well. It had to come off again anyhow for the big throttle body upgrade...
i will litterly drink appletinis while working on the cars.
probably explains the poor welds on my exhaust considering over the course of making it i had 6 appletinis
I was introduced to REAL Canadian Molsons on a race trip to Mosport. Most of that evening got a bit fuzzy.

Sorry, can't tell from the pic. LOL
If this mechanic is drinking Keystone Light, he is working, foreign or domestic.
this Challenge mechanic is drinking beer thinking about octoberfest

I've never heard anything more ridiculous.
I don't drink while working on cars. It only dehydrates me, and it's a great way to forget to tighten bolts and have wheels/important bits fall off.

Although, during the summer, Pyramid Curveball is my post-wrenching beer of choice (if not drinking homebrew).

Quoted for stereotype.
there seem to be many cans of Guiness scattered about my garage...
how in the world is drinking a martini the most rediculous thing. its my drink of choice. i dont drink beer. mikes lemonade gives me heartburn if im working hard. so martinis it is.
I think it's just drinking alcohol stronger than 5.5% while working.
And out of curiosity, why don't you drink beer? Granted, I'm a bit biased, but I think if you enjoy alcohol and don't have an allergy to any ingredients, there is a beer out there for everyone.
If you're into Mike's Hard, wine coolers, and stuff like that, try Shock Top. It's technically a beer, but it's really a sweet fruity girly malt beverage, that's got nicer body and a sweetness that's not completely overwhelming.
i dont drink beer because after years of trying i never found one that i thought tasted remotely even edible.
Funny, I like shocktop..but that stuff's pretty high on the calorie/alc rating.
