Default Women That Know More Than Your Mechanic

Im the Content Manager at MyClassicGarage, and I have been commissioned to write a blog as a guest writer to drive more traffic to our site.

The owner of the blog has challenged me with this blog topic, "10 Women that will destroy your mechanic's ego by knowing his job better than he does."

I need help making a list of women. So far I have Danica Patrick, then I got creative and started thinking of fictional women, like Angelina Jolie from "Gone in 60 Seconds" and Michelle Rodriguez from "The Fast and the Furious."

So, what women do yall know that could embarrass a mechanic?

Watch the podium from the last F1 race -- a chick accepted the constructor's trophy. Can't remember her name, but apparently she's a legit member of the race team.

There are so many real life car enthusiast women in this world that if you are seriously resorting to some movie characters I feel bad for you and you should re-consider your blog writing goals

LOL, just because danica can drive fast, doesn't mean she knows the first thing about engines, or cars. Just because someone knows everything about cars, doesn't mean they can drive fast. I know it's supposed to be a humor piece, but it doesn't sound much more thought out than the typical "XX things that YY" list on Cracked.



The reason women "suck" when it comes to mechanical things is a sociological issue, not a gender issue. Maybe take the philosophical high road and discuss the results of gender inequalities and per-determined social-outcomes?

No sense of humor on this Tuesday morning? Plus, why do you think I started this thread? I obviously need more names that I haven't been able to come across through my own research.

Goal easily achieved.

Thanks for the help, though. Others have posted real women and links that have helped tremendously. Maybe you should re-consider your thread reply goals? Or is it to just achieve more posts, because then you have done well, my friend.

Here we go:

Red Bull put a woman on the podium in F1 first | Reuters

Also, how about Sabine Schmitz?

^ This.

Frankly, the whole concept of evoking fictional characters seems kind of pathetic to me in this context. You could fill your quote here just by paying a visit to the mechanical engineering department of the nearest major research university.

no, miata2fast only did 33.3% of the work by only mentioning 1 of the three hosts of "all girls garage" and HE is also the lazy one; I performed 66.6% of his work.

Of the three, Cristy seems the least skilled. At least she comes across that way to me. Bogi seems like she knows what she is doing. Jessi? That girl has talent.
