Contrary to popular believe, my name is Carl, not Scott. MotorScotti is the motoring version of my the my original “Scotti” brand named MisterScotti. I created misterscotti.com in the spring of 2015 simply to document my three months travels across the United States of America, which has since become a general travelling blog, even though that’s become a bit dusty by now. As I decided to document and share my own “motoring world”, I wanted develop a certain continuity and grow the “Scotti” family. There you go, MotorScotti.com was born, together with its Youtube channel and Facebook page, later followed by its Instagram account.
A passion for cars
I’m a 30+ guy who ever since I was a little kid I have been passionate about cars. During the night, on long holiday family journeys across Europe I used to identify car brands and their respective model types just by looking at the oncoming headlights. Cars have always fascinated me. Whether it’s the beautiful and sumptuous lines, a stylish interior that pays attention to details regarding its purpose and the workmanshop, the performance, the history of the brand and the car or simply the emotional value a very common car can have for me.
My goal is to share my passion for cars and motorcycles, fix, save vehicles in need and most of all, share my knowledge with everyone out there watching, as well as learning from your feedback.
The theme has shifted over the years: From reviews of model cars, to my very first proper mechanical work on the bobber conversion of my 1100 Yamaha Drag Star Classic, to doing service, repair and slight modification on my 2012 Peugeot RCZ, to the restoration and conversion of my 1990 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am to Knight Rider’s KITT, all the way to servicing and repairing other people’s cars
Working on customers’ cars allows me to broaden my knowledge, share my experience with the social media communities on YouTube, Instagram and Facebook, as well as getting me closer to eventually open my own workshop for classic cars.
Project manager, Youtuber or mechanic?
My professional career has only marginally anything to do with cars. After graduating from high school, I studied business administration in Switzerland, France and the USA, and at the same time completed several internships in the automotive industry, namely at Porsche My focus was always on the project world with a strong connection to IT topics.
This was followed by several years as a project manager at Touring Club Switzerland. The projects were great, but I missed the international environment. So I decided to realize a lifelong dream and travel through the USA for three months. At the same time, the urge to work on my own vehicles increased more and more: 2014 my Motorrard conversion, as well as my RCZ and at the same time the desire to share my knowledge with others. According to the motto “My experience can help others to become more independent or at least get a better understanding of their vehicle”. This was the reason why I started my YouTube channel in 2015.
After a couple of years in sales in Ireland, I came back to Switzerland to lead sales topics, but mainly project & process tasks in the family business.
At the same time, I have always kept some time free for my MotorScotti world. So my projects and therefore my skills on classic, as well as modern cars, have gradually evolved. My mechanic apprenticeship consists of passion, thirst for knowledge and experience and will probably never be over, because I also learn every time I teach others something.
