Man I miss the days when regular guys could work on cars with a small box of tools!
Yeah, me too. I worked on them for 38 years before I got hurt, and I do miss the hell of it. Being a mechanic was my dream, even though the school
told be i could be an attorney, doctor, or astronaut for that matter. I was, and still am of the belief that one does with their life makes them
happy. I worked in dingy grease stained clothes, in dark service garages, on cars that dripped water in the winter, and oil when they were wearing
out, and yes, I worked under a grease rack too. And I love each and every second of it. Cars are my first, and only true love, and always will be.
today's cars do nothing for me, the car companies have become whores, and the cars have became throw away things. I see then and ofter think to
myself, did he get the mower deck with that model? I would give anything to go back to say, 68 or so, and work on them again.
