Hey everybody! My name is Justin Welch and I am a young wanna be hot rodder. I am attending California Baptist University and working on my Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering. My dream is to work in a hot rod shop. If anyone has any suggestions I would greatly appreciate some advice on breaking into this field. Thanks!
Justin Welch

"Breaking into this field" comes down to getting out there and getting into a job doing SOMETHING at a shop. I mean, it may be sweeping the floor or some other menial task. Of course doing stuff on your own at home and with what you learn at school you will be well on your way.
