About me and my passion for cars

I rebuilt my first engine at 14 years old (a 216 cid Chevy six) and had my first wreck in a 1941 Chev 2 dr. at 14 years old. I get my first ticket for speeding at 14 1/2 years old just 10 hours after I got my license. I have owned hundreds of cars over the years. I have been in my own business for 42 years now and still operate it. I have a shop with two hoists and it is 40 foot by 119 foot with a concrete pad out back with a 48 inch deep pit to work on my backhoe. My wife of 43 years is very much into cars also and when I say I bought another car she says, "Wow, that is neat, when can we start on it?". I have three sons; one owns and operates several electronic installation schools throughout the country, one owns and operates his own automotive repair business in Spokane Wa. and the third is the mechanical and building maintenance person for Harley Davidson in Spokane , Wa. We raise Sheltie puppies for sale on the farm and have four Shelties of our own. We like antiques and garage sales. Anyone around Spokane or traveling through please give us a call, especially if you are broke down or need help, we will be happy to help out however we can. Merrill
