In the Beginning

In the beginning there were so many cars, I can’t even keep count, the first car that I remember working on with my data was a 1949 Cadillac. It didn’t run, I remember getting under the car, and helping my dad take parts off of the engine: oil pump, fuel pump, carburetor to clean them, rebuild or replace them. When it finally did start using lots of starter fluid, and a mason jar to bypass the gas tank, the backfire shook the windows, and the smoke and debris that shot out of the exhaust was unbelievable. What a memory, the seed was planted but it took a long time to start growing. I grew up moved to New York (not a car friendly town, if you are a poor 20-something), and finally got back to Texas. Once back I started making up for lost time.
