I was born in the motor city and thus a dedicated automobile fan. I taught science and math in the Detroit Public Schools for 31 years. Lona and I retired to Tellico Village in 2008. May I welcome you to join our active motor fans as we explore our southern charms?

My upbringing was in the eastern suburbs of Cleveland, OH. My career was in radio communications. When I turned 16 my first car was a 1966 Plymouth Valiant conv, 273 CI, 4-bbl, 4-speed. A few years later I bought a new '71 Duster 340. My dad drove a '69 Charger 383 4-bbl and my mother a Plymouth Fury 440 4-bbl. 

In 1978 I bought my '71 Buick GS 350 conv in Spfld. IL and still have it after 34 years. Over the years I've owned a Lexus GS400, Plymouth Prowler, BMW M5 & 540i and M-B SL550. Recently, I sold the M-B and bought a '22 Subaru WRX 6M which I'm having a lot of fun with. My daily driver is a 2013 Audi A8 4.0L twin turbo 420 HP.
