I met Mike about 5 years ago. I was working at a shop on the east side of ATX and this old man in a 50 Merc stopped by and said he was throwing out a bunch of old Hotrod magazine away and if we wanted them come get them. followed him a block and a half to this little dead end road about 50 feet long. Well tucked away at the end was his house/shop. I had driven past this road a million times and never thought anything of it till that day. now I say shop but this guy has in no bigger than 20 x 20 ft shop is 5 Lathes 2 mills 3 tool boxes 2 welders and toons of just kick ass mechanical stuff. He is a mechanic's mechanic a machinist's machinist. a complete and well rounded gear head. Dosen't talk much about himself but is know and respected by all the old time builders/ racers around here. Found out a month or so ago he once held an AMA# and was feared on the tracks in this area. He is my friend
