My dad turned me on to Hot Rod and Car Craft magazines in the Ď70s. Since then Iíve considered myself a hot rodder and Iíve done most of my own car repairs since my first car. In general, as much as Iíve wanted to be part of the high performance scene, Iíve always felt like an observer. Iíve never had the budget to be able to afford the kind of custom car I have in my head. Instead I wound up driving inexpensive and practical cars that fit my budget and served my family.

Iím excited about because I can use the knowledge I have about how cars work toward a practical purpose. Also, Iím already learning new things about cars that I had never considered before. Itís like looking at my sport from the other side of the track. Also, the cars I have are perfect candidates for ecomodding.

1995 Dodge Dakota- 4cyl, 5spd manual, no AC
1996 Chevrolet Cavalier- 4cyl, auto, broken AC
2008 Kymco Agility 125- scooter

By necessity I drive at least 30 miles a day to and from work and school so I will have ample opportunity to test my results. Truly, I havenít been this excited about cars in some time! Letís see what we can do!
