Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I recently got more heavily involved in StackOverflow, and I've been quite pleased with the wide variety of topics we have. I have noticed however that we are lacking a place for topics related to automotives.

As someone who is very technically minded, I often find myself looking for information regarding cars, since it's an area I have very little expertise. I think it would be terribly helpful.

Thank you for your time.

Welcome to MSO! Requests for new sites aren't handled through this site. You'll probably want to check out the existing Cars proposal at Area 51, the place where new sites are discussed/incubated. – Pops Oct 30 '12 at 19:59
Forums? Forums?? FORUMS??? – Won't Oct 30 '12 at 20:02
@Won't I take it you prefer "Fora" over "Forums"? Or is that not what you're so subtly hinting at? :p – Bart Oct 30 '12 at 20:05
@Bart Robert Cartaino's hint was more subtle. ;) – kiamlaluno Oct 30 '12 at 20:08
@SamHuckaby Stack Exchange sites are not forums: They are Q&A sites. That is what Won't is trying to say. :) – kiamlaluno Oct 30 '12 at 20:09
@kiamlaluno I see! I'll change the topic to be appropriate ;) – SamHuckaby Oct 30 '12 at 20:10

Then head over to Area51, take a look at the current proposals (perhaps Cars fits the bill?).

If you find nothing - make a proposal!
