The book was fantastic, but no one was going to read it. Not, at least, in its current state. The author had packed his* manuscript with helpful information and practical advice.

What would you consider the greatest innovation in your own automotive history? What is that one or two things that you have benefited from directly? I know, not a grand set of questions, but just something to keep the juices flowing. I would say for myself, two things. The first would be Air Conditioning since I live here in Florida.

Thanks and have a great…Continue

Have a plan of action before jumping in. A plan of action could be a simple as some scribbles on a piece of paper but have one. Remember, you either pay now or pay…Continue
