About me and my passion for cars

Go too " My Albums" , to see my Passion for Cars

Flywheel's passion for cars started at age 8
at the wheel of a Silver 64' Pontiac Tempest , a white drop top and bright red interior , my dad worked the pedels and I got to steer..By age 14 Tore down and reassembled frist automatic transmission , a Chrysler 727,with a street/strip upgrade from B&M. Slapped it in a Mopar and went a cruis'in. By age 16 owned a 68 Fastback Barracuda,
drove it for the summer and tore her down replaced the K-Frame
to Big Block K-Frame, Trans upgraded to Fairbank Race Trans
and 4.30's out back,Cleaned House with that bad boy ! built
Muscle Cars thur high school, racing on the week-ends
down at hometown track, Maryland International Raceway
after high school went to a community college afterwards
enrolled into a Automotive Techincal School in Washington D.C. I Graduated in the Top 10 of my class.Marketed My Talent's to a
Transmission Shop, had three bays going on all the time.
After a few years in the trans biz,expanded to Electrical Shop
that did transmissions too . So I was Troubleshooting
electrical systems on most cars, trucks, vans, and some
emergency vehicle's, after hours used garage to build/restore
Muscle Cars. Moved to Southern Maryland and Teamed up with
Chrysler Dealership in the 90's . As Service Advisor, keeping a positive cash flow coming into dealerships service side
Then to acting parts manager on occasions, then after sucessfully trouble-shooting numerous cars ,that had intermittent electrical problems of one sort or another over a two month period , Chrysler Management , promoted me to, Head Auto Techincan and Head Auto Troubleshooter Technician.
After making them a few wheel barrows of positive cash flow,
I picked up my stakes and headed North away from the
long daily commute I have established myself in this part
of the country as a top certified automotive Technician
with 32 yrs exper. in the automotive industry .
Currrently , shaving the classic's from Crusher/Shredder and returning to their former glory ,
