He does wave his arms around a lot now that you mention it, but old Scotty's saved me so much money over the past few years he gets a pass!.


.
He answered a comment about that the other day.

"Scotty, why do you wave your arm around like you're having a seizure?"

"Because it's more interesting than (then he went all limp and monotone) talking like this."

I think satisfaction would be the greatest reason for fixing your own vehicle. Knowing one has the capability's to fix anything is a comfort cause having to depend on others just plain sucks.
Yessir, it also puts you more "in touch" with the nuances while driving IME.

The guys informative but hard to watch, I mean, is he Italian with all the arm movements or a recovering crack user...or both? He cannot sit still. JMO.
I think he has ADD type personality and he's very passionate. He also amps up his presentation for WW broadcast. My favorites are when he's sitting at his desk and answering questions cause he doesn't talk so loud and is more subdued. The pictures he adds are priceless. He's got a great sense of humor,
