[twitter]The first time my car needed an oil top up, I had to pull into a gas station and ask which cap to remove. I am not a car guy. If it was left to me, I would have dumped some 10w30 in the windshield fluid tube. Seriously.

So don’t worry about me beating you out in the Shell V-Power® Ultimate Enthusiast Contest for the first time in Canada. As the name suggests, the contest aims to find the Canadian who best embodies the ultimate enthusiast – that one person who eats, sleeps and breathes their vehicle.

Shell is serious about finding a bona fide car geek. The contest requires you to answer some easy questions (including “Do you let anyone drive your car?”), but it also requires you to think about some answers and answer questions about how your passion for vehicles began and what you would purse if money was no object.

Those answers will then be judged by a panel of well-known automotive insiders including Graeme Fletcher, licensed mechanic and Canadian automotive journalist; Jil McIntosh, freelance auto writer; Frédéric Plante, co-host of 5 à 7 on RDS; Joe Duarte, senior Autonet writer, Sun Media; Justin Pritchard, automotive journalist and co-chair, Canadian Car of the Year Awards; and Gary Grant, automotive blogger.
