Hi all, im new to hotrodders.com and thought id take a few minutes to introduce myself. I have a long history in the automotive field. It started at the age of 11 with my first job at a local NAPA store. Where i went from the front counter in sales to the engine shop as a machinist. After high school i started working with WELD Racing Ent. is retail/wholesale sales. Followed by a 3 year stint in the Navy. When released I took a machinist postion locally and worked in CNC machining piece work for 13 years. Over the last five years i returned to the automotive side by writing articles and photographing every make and model of car or event i could attend. This landed me a postion in publishing and lead me to opening my own hot rod parts store.
