    All welders are electric unless your talking about brazing but that's not good for car apps anyway. If you want a welder then you're going to want a MIG. arc welding sucks and Tig welding is complex and expensive although you can weld any metal there is. As was stated Lincoln makes a good welder and you definatly want to set it up for use with a sheilding gas aka Argon it keeps the welds from getting contaminated and splattering
