My background is mechanical engineering and I started off writing automotive articles for the Antique & Classic Car Club, Niagara Region chapter. When ACCCC Niagara's site was taken down, I transferred my tech content here to my personal web site. I have a collector car (a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda) that I've had since 1983 and the experiences I've had with it were often the starting point for the articles.
