I love cars. I especially love the ones from the era when I grew up, primarily the 1980s and 1990s. At the car meets when everyone is fawning over Mustangs and Corvettes, I’m the guy admiring the wood paneled station wagon or bug-eyed sprite. I tend to appreciate “ugly” cars and oddities more than most folks. I also really like boring cars, because they don’t get saved and cared for like muscle or sports cars and therefore become harder to find. A Camaro doesn’t turn my head, but a Chevette will get my attention every time.

When it comes to working on cars, I have no training at all. My house doesn’t even have a garage. I’m not the most mechanically-inclined person, but I am persistent and I like figuring things out. I probably don’t have any business working on vehicles, but it’s fun and I like it. If you want to give me any pointers or suggestions, please send me a message.
