New GBXM tradition.
Every year on April Fool’s Day, we make wild predictions—about gearhead work, life, and alignment.
Not as a joke, either. More like, “Hey, while we’re all being a little silly, here’s some big ideas just crazy enough they might work.” Consider it an exercise in crazy audacious stretch goals.
Will we come together and make things happen or just laugh them off as fools’ errands?
Let’s agree to hold judgment until 3/31/19, okay?
Here we go…
WE’RE EVOLVING BEYOND THE MOD LIST.
Mods are cool, but we no longer give a shit. The build STORY is more important than the build LIST. Sure, mods make the machine, but 99% of the time, mod lists are just another way of showing off how much stuff someone could afford to buy.
After 20-plus years, sorry. Just do not care.
The ideas and goals and plans and outcomes of those builds are what we’re after. We’re tired of cookie cutter builds and hard parking. We’re looking for gearheads excited by—or at least reasonably curious—how the cars modify US.
WE’RE DIVING DEEP INTO SIGNIFICANT SHIT.
True journalism makes the significant interesting and relevant. The world is changing every day. Technology is coming for our jobs. We’re done bitching and moaning. It’s time to figure this shit out and modify the world.
Very important: We are NOT getting into politics.
Gearheads transcend political bullshit and solve problems. We’re going to come up with ways for gearheads to sail the winds of change to fame and fortune or at least hedge against change as it comes.
PENMANSHIFT IS COMING BACK.
And it’s bringing reinforcements.
We’re already building the team.
WE WILL BE THE GEARHEAD’S SECRET WEAPON.
The credo rings true:
- True success comes from helping others.
- A difference is the only thing worth making.
- Work-life parallel > work-life balance.
If you’re ready to stop wasting time online and start wasting the competition, you better be subscribed.
BECAUSE WE’RE GOING TO HELP OUR SUBSCRIBERS FIRST.
We’re not going to flood social media with feel-good platitudes, kissing ass, looking for likes and follows.
We will NOT be all things to all people.
But we WILL be everything to some.
Our subscribers will go confidently and get results that effing matter. (#RTFM)
YOU’RE GOING TO HEAR ALL ABOUT IT.
Because you’re a gearhead. Because you know being a gearhead matters. Because you want more from life. Because you know this is STILL a ground floor opportunity and you want in.
And because all it takes is 15 seconds RIGHT NOW to subscribe to one email a week on Friday mornings.
THERE IS NOTHING FUNNY ABOUT THIS.
We are literally running out of time.
We’re gonna make this year count.
(I might just put this on the home page, too.)
