I have been a motor head since my early teenage years which began when my father taught me to drive at a very young age. After graduating from high school, I attended an automotive school.
I have owned and operated a full service gas station and towing business. My major accomplishment was getting Pottstown Sr. High School ASE certified. For 8 years I was an automotive instructor and enjoying working with the students. While teaching, I formed an automotive race club for the students who were eager to experience racing muscle cars and imports in a safe manner.
My projects over the years have been building and racing a Big Block 69 Camaro Z28 which I have owned and raced for over 30 years; my wife’s 72 Camaro Z28, small block, which she races very well; my son’s 68 Camaro Z28, small block. Besides my family, drag racing is at the top of my list for excitement and pleasure; as you can see, it’s a family affair. My rule as Speed Shop Manager at Pep Boys is like a shot of nitrous oxide……the sky’s the limit.
