Mr Stephens’ Engine Shop

Mr Stephens’ Engine Shop

I once worked for BMW NZ, it was in the parts department, I lifted a lot of disc brakes, stayed out of trouble and was very occasionally allowed to dive a real BMW.

It was always my dream to steal one BMW part a day and slowly begin assembling a 5-series in my bedroom. Despite the numerous flaws in this master plan, what foiled me before I even began was the fact that I had no idea where everything went. I worked all day surrounded by thousands of parts fresh from Munich but didn’t know how to sort them all out.

If I had the Mr Stephens’ Engine Shop educational game, right now I might be deciding which bedroom wall to smash through to release my finished 5-series. But sadly it’s too late for me.

You can still learn by checking out the game which is found amongst other cool stuff on the General Motors website. In the game you help assemble a Corvette ZR1 engine. If GM was as good at making reasonably-sized vehicles as it is at making cheesy games then it might not be on the verge of bankruptcy.
