    About Me
    My oldest son got me interested. He passed away suddenly in 2000. I continued rebuilding his dream car, changing it a bit to my taste. Truly a labor of love. It's been mostly finished since Feb. 2007, after many, many weekends of work, between 2001 and 2006. My youngest son, now 22, helped me with the assembly, after the shell came home from the paint shop in Oct. 2005. He's a better driver than I, as his daily driver is a 5-speed V-6 '98 Mustang (He also has a '95 GTS with a 306 and black Cobra interior). I'm an engineer by "trade" and currently manage maintenance at an industrial plant located on the Mississippi River, where I have 250 people in my group and we spend a $52 million budget annually. My wife of 29 1/2 years is the best. She doesn't quite understand the fascination with hot rods, but she loves the fact that I finished our son's dream car and it is a "living" part of him, now a big part of the family, taking the car to shows, cruises, etc.
