    I was raised in an old school, working class, blue collar Cleveland, Ohio family and I developed my work ethic and mechanical skills growing up around my grandfather who fixed everything himself, from fans to cars. Took all the shop classes I could back in school and I never forgot my roots. I can still fix just about anything put before me. I purchased my first car in '77, a 1963 Belvedere ex-US Forest Service wagon for $75, and spent that first summer customizing it on a teenager's budget... and I had a blast doing it and learning cool shit while I was at it.

    I got married in 1980 and after that my new family, a new business and a constant shortage of extra spending money, along with the loss of my wife to cancer in '87, kept me from enjoying cars for anything other than basic transportation.

    And now, here I am. After all these years I've managed to get my shit together to the point where I can get back into working on vintage iron for the pure enjoyment of it.

    Right now I'm commuting 4 hours a day during the week to work and back, which only leaves me the weekends for wrenching in between my duties at home. But little by little progress is being made. And fun is being had!
