About me and my passion for cars

I have a hot rod shop that is dedicated to saving lives. Using old cars and trucks to train gang members in the art of automobile restoration. I personally recruit them off the streets of Chicago and bring them into a 10,000 sq foot warehouse and try to make them understand the passion and wonderful experiences that we've all had with these old cars.

I use my own money to purchase tools and equipment and supplies. I provide uniforms, meals and most times transportation. It takes a lot of patience and counseling to turn these guys around. But when they get it, they got it.

The goal is to produce future hot rod builders of all kinds, to further this profession. I could use whatever help from anyone that's concerned about the future of these young men and women. Please look at the videos and contact me with any comments.
