My mechanical background dates back to the early 1960’s taking apart small engines just to find out how and why they did what they did. Over the next 10 years I figured out the why and how and started repairing them. I worked at various garages as a mechanic until I realized it was the supplier part of the automotive world I had to be in.
During the early 1970’s I took up drag racing. I ran a front engine dragster along with many other race cars over the next 10 years or so. After my bout with race cars, I decided to try building my own car. During that time, I hand built a 1923 Ford Model T roadster, bought a 1938 Plymouth 2 door sedan, and hand-built a 1932 Ford.
I got back into my first love of drag racing in 2000, in a rather big way, with a 1960 Chevrolet BelAir. As the 2009 racing season came to a close, we decided to sell the car and turn our focus towards camping.
You can rest assure that when you send me an item to be rebuilt, whether it’s a fuel pump or an engine mount, I will treat it as if it were going on my own car.
