Classic/Antique Car Repair/Expert Profile

Ask A Question


I can answer most questions about autos built in the 1920 through 1990. Mechanical issues and technical questions are my expertise. I also have a general knowledge of most older automobiles. Keep in mind, I can only provide answers if the questions are very specific and complete. Without details, I can only speculate and that's not good for solving your problem.

Experience in the area

I have owned and maintained Silver Shadows for over 10 years now. I find most mechanics and even Rolls Royce mechanics have very little knowledge about these automobiles. I have researched these cars in quite a bit of detail and can pretty much tell you what is wrong, if you can describe the behavior in detail. I have saved quite a few RR owners a lot of money and aggravation due to improper diagnosis. I am the owner of Classy Transportation, LLC a luxury limousine service specializing in antique cars, classic cars, vintage cars and exotic cars.


All around the Internet


I hold a BS degree in computer science and a MS degree in mechanical engineering.

Awards and Honors

I regularly compete at car shows and average around a dozen awards annually.

Hi Frank:  As a standard rule...    1. Oil should be changed every 3,000 or 6 months, which ever come first.  2. Transmission fluid should be changed every 20,000 miles or 2 years, which ever come first

2015-11-11 1929 Erskine coupe:

Hi Peter:  Not sure what you mean when you say too tight.  It depends on the steering box that was used.  If the car was restored to original specs, then  tight steering and turning is what they had in

2015-09-11 cleaning old gasoline from fuel system:

When you said, "Dry Storage" do you mean there are fluids still in the cars?  If so, for how long? If there is gas in the tank that has been sitting for years,  the first thing is to remove and cleaning

2015-06-18 1982 Chrysler brakes:

Hi Jim:  Since you and your mechanic disagree, I would do two things...    1. Check the manual and see if there is a stopping distance chart in it.  Some mfg provide that at certain speeds for you to test
