Autopians Still Can’t Get Enough Of Stephen Walter Gossin’s Awesome Rescues: Comment Of The Yesterday

Somewhere, deep in an undisclosed location in North Carolina, one man saves America’s forgotten cars from a fateful date with a crusher. He is Stephen Walter Gossin, and he’s bringing the cars of your childhood back one piece at a time. Tune in for episodes involving sorrow, laughs, and triumphs as he saves vehicles from all matter of maladies. The Autopian’s readers cannot get enough of our wrenching hero correspondent!

One of our features exclusive to members is Wrenching Wednesday, a chat with Autopian staff and readers about bustin’ nuts, spinnin’ spanners, and having a cold one or a few. We generally don’t highlight comments from Members’ Areas for Comment Of The Day, but you guys love the Notorious S.W.G. so much that I have to. (And reminder, you can become a member for just six bucks a month!)

Each person at The Autopian has weirdly strong strengths, but nobody brings the charm while simultaneously teaching you about some hardcore wrenching like Gossin Motors. Don’t worry, we have more S.W.G. content on the way. Until then, I want to show you Gossin, how much he’s loved.

Sensual Bugling Elk starts us off:

“Excellent, fantastic, thought-provoking” is also how I’d describe your writing. It genuinely makes my day brighter to see your byline on these pages, or even your name in the comments section (or Discord! Hi!).

I think you have the right approach, earned from experience, and I’ll probably be replicating it. Hopefully I can avoid the “you touched it last” folks. My last really satisfying pro bono job was diagnosing and then fixing a huge coolant leak on a friend’s Subaru; she was super appreciative and made it clear before I touched the car that if I mechanically totalled the car making any mistakes we were still A-OK.

Enjoy the Stanley Tucci Negronis tonight, my guy.

This one is for Matt Hardigree, from Freelivin2713:

No questions at the moment besides:
Will you please finally let him do the
JAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAG
article?!

At least 15 other readers agree to see this Jaguar entry one day! 3WiperB is one of many inspired by Gossin, including myself:

Not so much a question, but a comment. Watching people wrench, like SWG, gives me confidence that I can do things that are outside my comfort zone. There’s so many resources out there now to learn how to do a repair.

Also, the pick and pull is a great place to learn too. What better way to figure out how something goes together than to figure out how to take it apart first.

My kids aren’t so interested in learning about car repairs (or house remodeling and repairs), but I always hope that my showing them I can do it, they realize later that they don’t have to pay someone else to do things. Grab some tools and watch a video.

I rebuilt a carburetor last week and it actually worked afterwards. And I mostly have it adjusted now. And I somewhat understand how it works now. Those are all things I knew nothing about 2 weeks ago.

And with each repair, I usually get myself a new tool. Last week it was a heated ultrasonic cleaning tub that fits a carburetor.

Let’s finish this bad boy with a pun thread. Contributor Emme Hall got to play in the dirt with a Ford Mustang Mach-E Rally, and our readers did what they do best. From Canopysaurus:

So, would you say that the magneto-rheological fluid is the X factor in the Mach E Rally performance?

And StillNotATony:

Careful. You’re gonna stir up a Collossus of a Storm of puns.

Plus MATTinMKE:

Seems like a Gambit we’re willing to take.

Then Carbon Fiber Sasquatch:

Really claws over terrain like a Wolverine, makes it a Jubilee to drive.

Have a great evening day, everyone!

SWG and DT are why I pay for a subscription. Everyone else is great but DT and SWG are my automotive heroes.

Bring back SWG!

I’ve missed seeing his articles round these parts.

It does not hurt that Mr. Gossin is easy on the eyes

I sometimes get asked if The Autopian is actually a tabloid.

It’s not, but it does sometimes publish hot Goss.
