About Me

 

Who am I?

 

     The best way to describe me is that I have been a car-guy for as long as I can remember.  My Dad owned an auto wreckers in San Francisco during the mid 60's.  That's where I really got hooked.  He said I could have any car I wanted just as long as I could fix it. Working with tools helped me get into aircraft maintenance school when I joined the Army in 1965.  I spent 5 months learning to work on helicopters.  A year later, I sat in the open door of a Huey with an M-60 machine gun flying combat assaults over the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam.  About two years after my discharge I started working for IBM.  The good pay let me continue with cars and I ended up with SCCA & IMSA Competition Racing licenses.  I built and raced my own cars for a few years.  I stayed with IBM for 10 years then went out on my own.  I have been building cars for myself for over 30 years. In 1968, I bought a new American Motors AMX.  I still have it and have been it's only owner. I ran it in A-Production in the early '70s.  In 2001 I rebuilt it to run in the Vintage Series.

     The last new car I bought was a 1974 Alfa Romero!

     I've written a couple of books, several stage plays and a few years ago became involved with filmmaking.  You can check me out on IMDB.

I ride a 2002 Kawasaki Vulcan, scuba dive and enjoy good tequila.
