Lad, don't get disappointed when the first 6 - 7 games you develop don't work out as you thought. That's normal. Developing games is, just like programming and arts, a craft that you can't learn within a second.
I'ld recommend little things instead of starting a huge project at the beginning.
Learn programming LUA if you haven't done so already. Play around with the editor you use ( Unless you have some external editor, the integrated one has a really poor UI currently so I'ld rather wait for a better version to come. Donating to this project helps here ) and check out all the features you have.
And don't expect anything but time and wisdom if you're starting. Getting into some forum and asking for cars is a little suspicious. When you've got a project running, one of them graphic - geniuses ( I envy them their artistic skills ) might help you out - but not when there is nothing. Especially as the first 5-7 projects are quite... No comment.

best wishes for your projects, Davey
