2017 project: Restore Karman Ghia to its former glory. For the past two years, the chassis has been under wraps--literally--waiting for me to get the time and energy to get going. The "before" pictures will be posted at the beginning of the project.

While contemplating the next car project, I decided to buy a Jeep Grand Cherokee to replace my F150 truck. LOVED the truck but it was time. Pictures of 'Red' to follow. It's a beast.

Update on my 1970 Camaro project car: "parting is such sweet sorrow." SOLD! I finally listed the car on E-bay and got more interest than I thought.The new owner, a young man in his late 20's, purchased the car as a gift for his father. It will be a joint project for them to work on as a way to channel their grief at the the loss of their beloved wife and mother.

The owner is just another car guy like myself and has promised to send pictures of the car during its restoration. Stay tuned.

As for me, it's on to the next project!

I’m car crazy. At least that’s what my wife says. I’d say I am passionate about all things automotive, but in particular, helping others build or recreate the car of their dreams. Working on my brother's Chevrolet Chevelle SS 396 as a teenager sealed my fate. My first project car was a 1969 Javelin.

After being honorably discharged from the Army in 1979 (where I developed more mechanical skills), I went the corporate route but never lost my enthusiasm for cars. For family and friends I became the “go to” guy for help with researching car purchases; evaluating (or verifying) repair needs; or, suggesting the appropriate after- market modifications for better performance, speed or gas consumption.

Over the years as I worked on my own projects---restoring 25+year old cars ‘back to the numbers’--- I created my own DIY network of like- minded mechanics, parts specialists and body specialists. As that network grew, so did the circle of people asking for advice.

When I started auctioning spare parts on Ebay, I often found myself in long phone or email conversations with prospective buyers, answering questions about the parts being sold, their use or other viable options. It was from overhearing these conversations over and over and over again that my wife (a former HR executive) stated, “You should make this your job!” And thus was launched “…Just Another Car Guy…”
