About me and my passion for cars

I ran a repair shop for Mercedes and BMW cars back in the 70's. Specialized in installing turbochargers and nitrous oxide kits for street Q-ships.

Since the ZEV initiative in California, I've studied electric cars and they've become my passion because of their quietness, reliability, efficiency, and low emissions.

I currently drive the only model of electric vehicle that GM ever sold - the 1998 GM Chevrolet S10 electric truck.

My first car

'63 Rambler American 2dr Whte roof, Blue body.

Drove it 180,000 miles. Did one valve job and replaced original engine at 110,000.

About me and my passion for bikes

I really enjoy riding bikes around town. It's good exercise and low impact (I hope!). I never know when my stamina will give out so I have a bike with a rechargeable battery and motor to help me get home when my hip (broken a few years back) gives out.

My first bike

24" Schwinn

My dream bike

TidalForce S750X
