About Auto Repair and Restoration

I've been working in the automotive and performance automotive industry nearly my entire career. I have more than 50 years of mechanical and engine repair and rebuild experience. 

I often helped people that couldn't afford to pay to have their vehicles fixed, when I owned my own shop. I'd help them by providing advice and guidance to do it themselves. This site has been developed in that same spirit - it embodies my life's work to help others do for themselves.
