I'm nobody special, just your average gearhead who likes old cars. I started getting interesting in how things work at an early age. I think I was around 4 years old when I found a small screwdriver and took my Dad's alarm clock apart.
I was born in '55 so this put me at the right age when Ford came out with the Mustang. This is when the Gearhead Bug bit me. I was lucky to experience the muscle cars of the 60's and 70's, hanging out on Friday and Saturday nights, street racing and talking cars with the guys, chasing girls all night.
2003-2004 I had health issues that eventually put me out of work for 9 consecutive months. I was forced to cashed my 401k to pay doctor bills and tax penalties. I still ended up losing my house. Looks like everybody wants to kick you while you are down. I was able to return to work in February of '05 only to go back out August '06. I returned to work a year later and took an early retirement in September '07. Now everyday is Saturday except for Sunday.
