AutoModifed Team interview – Jomacher

30 August 2010 10 Comments

AM: What is your name?
Jomacher: Joe

AM: Food topics are bland, but they are always popping up in bloody interviews so let’s get this one done with. What’s your favourite food?
Jomacher: I can eat Macaroni and Cheese every day of the week and on weekends I love Pizza. I make my own.

AM: What is your occupation apart from being part of the AutoModified team?
Jomacher: I’m a Rocket Scientist but applied my theories on cars. Lol, I’m a Paralegal Office Manager, if you wanna know what that is, please refer to my first answer.

AM: This question probably sounds like something you would be asked at a dating show but I’m sure some ladies out there would like to know, lol.. Married/Single/Attached?
Jomacher: Married but my wife wouldn’t agree. She says she could never be my wife coz she does not have 4 wheels.

AM: Where about did you grow up in South Africa and where are you based at the moment?
Jomacher: Born and raise in Joburg, yeah, I know so don’t give me any crap. I don’t take crap. Now based in Pretoria and loving it here.

AM: Have you ever been out of South Africa, if so where too?
Jomacher: Yeah, only England and Wales. I came back coz this Joburg boy was too rough for them.

AM: So what was the first car you drove and then what was the first car you owned?
Jomacher: The first car I ever drove was a stolen Uno. (Well, it was a courtesy car that my mom had when she was in an accident with her Hyundai Accent) I just took it Monday to Thursday at 2am in the mornings to learn to drive.

AM: Muscle car or Tuner or Classic?
Jomacher: Definitely tuner

AM: Turbo or N/A?
Jomacher: Both, the faster the better.

AM: We realize this is pretty much a typical car talk question so let’s tick this box while we are talking about it. What is your ultimate car and what helped you decide on that specific car?
Jomacher: Well, I had a few like the Mazda Astina and RX7 but nothing quite shakes me up like the Mitsubishi EVO X. I9 think the fact that it’s not available in SA makes me even more eager to have one. I will have one eventually.

AM: Racing, dragging or drifting?
Jomacher: I prefer racing (track) but wouldn’t mind dragging or drifting if the opportunity arises.

AM: Which better fits your style of car, Performance or Sound?
Jomacher: Style, sound and performance in that order.

AM: Bass or Clarity?
Jomacher: I love Bass but it means nothing if you can’t hear treble so in my opinion there has to be balance.

AM: What CD are you listening to at the moment?
Jomacher: I love old school Trance and House and some fidget. At the moment I have Trance House 6 in my car but I get bored quickly. I chop and change almost daily.

AM: Any future plans running through your mind for your car?
Jomacher: Ha ha ha, the list is endless. I don’t think you ever stop hey. Your mind will always wonder.

AM: What’s going to be the next car you buy?
Jomacher: Golf V GTI, Mitsubishi EVO IV or X if there is kids involved but if still available by next year June I’m buying a BMW 333i.

AM: Keeping on topic here, what’s your favorite brand of vehicle?
Jomacher: Toyota for reliability although there has been some disputes about that. Second choice would be a VW, any one.

AM: Like any car enthusiast one would assume you have done some sort of modification to your vehicle, what is it and why?
Jomacher: My soundsystem coz it needed an upgrade, the bodykit coz it needed that too, next will be the motor coz it desperately needs that too.

AM: When did you start working for AutoModified and how has your experience been so far?
Jomacher: About 4/5 months ago. I have finally got a platform where I can air my views and what better place than automodified.net.

AM: While we are on the topic of the website, how did you get involved with AutoModified?
Jomacher: I met Blair while chatting on zoopedup.

AM: Lets step away from cars for a little bit and step into the entertainment arena. What’s the worst joke you have heard recently and what was it?
Jomacher: It was bad and if I told you I would spread that which I despise. Let me just say “Religion” is not something you joke about.

AM: If you could have one super power what would it be and why?
Jomacher: To have all the knowledge in the world. That way no-one can lie or tell you otherwise.

AM: Favorite movie of all time?
Jomacher: “The ultimate gift”. There’s no well-known celebrities that play in it but well-worth checking it out. I love movies that learns you something, you know, give you a good lesson.

AM: Name three things not many people know about you?
Jomacher: Well, if I told you, people will know then hey ? I’ll tell you anyway.
1. I don’t like taking pictures of women – It’s disrespectful to their men.
2. I don’t like arguments or strife or any kind of aggression. It’s something I struggle with so I try to avoid it.
3. I’m very religious, hence the fact that I don’t like it being made fun of.

AM: What do you do most weekends?
Jomacher: Spend time with my wife, work on or wash my car, visit family and try to get an hour or 2 on my PlayStation.

AM: We all speed once in a while :D
So how many speeding fines have you clocked up and what’s the highest speed through a camera that you’ve been caught at?
Jomacher: Aaahhhh man. You had to ask that question hey. Not sure of how many fines I got hey but I sped through a speeding camera at 180km/h in a 100km/h zone. I haven’t received that fine yet, Hopefully I never get it.

That brings us to the end of the AutoModified Team interview, but by all means if you have any questions that you would like to ask us, please leave a comment and the team member will hopefully answer it.
We will answer even if we are wrong ! LOL.
