I was born in California in 1964, grew up in a small town in the
central San Joaquin Valley, and have spent most of my life here. After
graduating high school I went directly to technical school in Phoenix
AZ., where I dean's listed three out of my four courses and graduated
with perfect attendance.
While attending tech school I worked for "British Sports Car Service"
as a mechanic in training, then after graduating I went to work as a
mechanic at the local British dealership, while taking machine shop
courses at the local college. I didn't like working under dashboards
all that much but I loved the mechanical part of the cars so I found a
job working for a machine shop, where they started me on crank
grinding. After a few years I was running most all of the machines and
I am now the owner of that very same machine shop where I have been
the sole machinist for 35+ years.
My first car purchase, was on my 16th birthday while coming home from
the DMV with my new license, a 1960 Ford F-100. Three months later I
bought my second car, a 1969 MGB-GT. The two constants in my love of
automobiles has been British cars and old Ford trucks (with Y-Block
V8s), what a combination. I also hold a private pilot certificate and
have logged over 1500 hours of flying time, 400 in tail wheel, in the
two airplanes I have owned and any others I could get my hands on.
