- I am life long automotive enthusiast. I have built vehicles that gained prominence in automotive magazines and books such as Petersen’s Complete Book of Fords, Complete Book of Vans and Pick-ups, Complete Book of Paint and Body. Ray Miller’s Nifty Fifty Fords, Legendary Ford Magazine and others. I have also been involved in activities as a driver/builder in Sports car racing (SCCA & FCCA, Champion C/Prod. FCCA.), NHRA, VRA, NDRA, ANRA, AHRA Drag Racing and circle track racing (Announcer/Advertising), Kart racing (Sprint kart 100cc).
Won the Sweepstakes award at the R.G. Canning Championship Car shows, Import Division. Completed various restorations and have been quoted in car buff journals for my views and insight into the hobby and sport of car racing, collecting, rodding, etc.
I entered the auto industry as many young men did by working in gas stations when in high school. My first job out of college was that of a high school auto shop instructor. I brought my racing and rodding experience into the classroom and gave a new twist to high school auto shop (1974-77).
My racing activities lead me to positions as a motor sports writer for a local newspaper and Goodguys Rod & Custom Association. I am or have been an announcer for Motocross racing, Drag Bike, NHRA, Goodguys-VRA, NDRA, ANRA, Antique Nationals and various racetracks and sanctioning bodies across the country as well as Drag racing videos and TV/radio broadcasts of many events worldwide. I continue to travel with the Goodguys Rod & Custom Association and though no longer based at Los Angeles County Raceway (1977-1997) I still announce select NHRA events such as the California Hot Rod Reunion, March Meet and others. I was one of the early members of the NHRA Announcers Guild, staff announcer at Irwindale Drag strip and contributing personality on Speed Scene Live TV.
