Expertise

Heretofore, I will NOT answer any mechanical question. I am not qualified and can only offer speculations. You are better served by others that are true Techs. With that being said, please only ask about parts and locating obsolete Auto Parts. Thank you. I have the ability to locate quite a few mechanical parts for American made vehicles fron the 1900`s to present. Some are OEM and some are aftermarket. This would include engine, brake and chassis parts. Body parts and trim are VERY difficult to find but you may inquire. If you need assistance in repair, I have illustrated books for major American manufacturers that show some illustrations BEFORE 1974. If needed, I can supply repair manuals for your specific vehicle. PLEASE REMEBER I'M A PARTS SPECIALIST, NOT A TECH!! Thank you.. Skip

Past/Present Clients

Too many to list but they run from Europe through America and to Australia.

What do you like about this subject?

I love cars. I like to see the old ones on the road being used. NOT trailer Queens. Drive 'em. Enjoy 'em.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

Teach people that an old car is not necessarily a poluter.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

A lot of what is on a street car was derived from race cars... seat belts, side view mirrors and so on..

Prashant,    It is feasible but not, in my opinion, practical. Firstly, it would raise the price of Gas (someone has to pay for the feature and the electricity for lights). Over here in America, almost
