highway star says hi
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell about my hot rod interest. I'm 57 and I've been working on cars since I was old enough to hold a trouble light for someone.(hey kid, don't shine that light in my eyes, turn it a little bit.) About the only time I've hired a mechanic is when I've broken down on the road. Its not that I'm that good of a mechanic, but I would have to watch over their shoulder so I might as well do it myself.
I've had a lot of fast cars through the years and currently own a 79 corvette. I've added a few go fast items to it and it runs 13.9 @ 99 in the quarter. Not earth shattering, but a whole lot faster than stock.
I have 3 other cars and a truck so I'm always working on something and can use all the advice I can get.
As for my quirks; I wont work on anything without a manual and I tend to torque every thing that has a value listed.
Thanks for giving me this opportunity to introduce myself. Talk at ya latter.
