Well I turn 70 this year (April ) and its another milestone.
People ask me some times “what do you do” and my answer for 50 plus years is “I do Cars”
From a kid in the Esso station in the early sixtys my entire life has been servicing, teaching or just playing with cars!!! From a farm mechanic , gas station, motorcycle shop,Firestone ,fleet mechanic for Town Of Speedway Police cars-trucks etc. Then teaching mechanics at Lincoln Tech ( Ignition ) to Allen Testproducts as program developer and training instructor. Opened my own business in 1991 training mechanics, dyno shop and servicing Fuel Injector Systems with products shipped all over the US . Taught automotive seminars in 28 states over the years...
Hobby interests has always been cars and hot rods . Vintage cars caught up with me at the Newport Indiana Annual Hillclimb and my friends and I serviced the entered cars in a Newport Alley for 32 years....Could write a book regarding those 32 years!!! We called out little mobile shop “Bubbas Garage” . Heres some Bubba humor from Newport !

For 2019 our plans are to only service Ford Flathead V8 distributor units and a few select aftermarket units. (such as Mallory, Grant Flamethrower and Harmon Collins)..
This should quicken our turn around time and thats what we do best . Flatheads ...
