  • About Me | DR1665
    of automobiles An 1100 quote to replace a head gasket from the dealership lead to my building a race engine with friends I d met online in a Phoenix back yard Work Experience Upon getting my degree in Technical Management from DeVry University in 2006 I set out in pursuit of the lucrative good job promised by many a high school guidance counselor and college recruiter Several thousand phone calls later I realized recruiting in the water wastewater engineering sector in the Carolinas from Scottsdale Arizona was not my cup of tea Follow your passion Contrary to popular belief being into cars doesn t necessarily mean every gearhead wants to sell or repair them After a little research I stumbled upon a highly regarded management trainee program with Enterprise Rent A Car I shaved off my goatee bought a couple hundred dollars worth of suits and ties for the office only to find myself hastily washing cars behind a tired building in downtown Mesa Arizona Three months later I was slinging parts for Harry working in aftermarket sales for a dot com It seemed I d found the perfect fit I spent my days talking to gearheads from all over the country about performance goals and helping them select the parts they need to do the job right Unfortunately nearly a year later it became apparent management wasn t forwarding customer payments to suppliers I left immediately It was about this time I got to thinking about how the thing I enjoyed most about automotive culture wasn t the cars but the people who build and use them Off the clock I had built one online automotive community was offered and administrator position on another moderated a couple others and was promoted to Wiseman on a fifth I decided to shift gears and pursue a community development coordinator position with a larger social network I was willing to turn a blind eye to the lead generation and advertising activities because I believed in the power of online communities to positively impact peoples lives still do but when I was told by new management not to participate in the communities I was developing I knew it wasn t the place for me I spent the summer of 2009 helping a very dear friend with a small electro mechanical engineering shop It felt good to be back behind a soldering iron assembling surface mount circuit boards running errands delivering products picking up materials and repairing and selling an old Mitsubishi he simply did not have time to deal with himself Discovering your passion Everything changed one evening on my own front porch A friend was visiting and sharing some of the problems her team was facing at work She asked me a question about building websites then another then another Looking back it was basically an interview Something clicked That was the day it all made sense Cars are the common thread running through my life Social media are the go to

  • Making Sense of Penny | DR1665
    all the advice and suggestions and just do what needs to be done Instinct is pretty powerful HOW The week before Penny was born I started jotting my thoughts in a notebook Over the course of our first year together I m going to keep taking notes daily at first less frequently over time I suspect in the hopes of giving other expecting first time fathers a glimpse into what it s really like minus all the syrupy Hallmark Moment bullshit Don t get me wrong Penny s less than one month old as I write this introduction to the project The past few weeks have honestly been nothing short of magical That s right I said magical But it s also been some of the most frustrating irrational psychosis I ve ever known If there s one lesson immediately learned it s that the pendulum swings equally in both directions WHAT Periodically I ll be revisiting my notes typing up a chapter and posting it here Expect to read about all the ups and downs of fatherhood from the perspective of a gearhead learning as he goes I ll be sharing what we go through work life cars etc

    Also replaced the plugs with a set of fresh NGKs Gapped to 0 044 per the FSM Interestingly the old plugs while not bad we all gapped less than 040 which suggests they weren t gapped right to begin with Might have something to do with the poor emissions While I was here I also replaced the PCV and air filter Bummer Every year I seem to have some kind of breakdown en route to the Prescott Rally This year was no different Somehow the wing nut holding my air cleaner to the carb wasn t there after my emissions test No worries The lid has 3 clamps and the base is bolted to the valve cover That is until the bracket breaks on the way up the mountain Couldn t even do 65mph wide open and burned through a quarter tank of fuel in 22 miles Sourced another air cleaner assembly from rally buddy Jon and re used the roadside rally repair 2001 2G Dodge Neon rally car head stud nut courtesy rallynotes com to lock everything down If only I didn t need to clean the carb and inspect the choke before my next emissions test Now the air filter requires tools Oh well Remaining items I ve got a new O2 sensor ready to install which will hopefully get me better than 60 miles on that first quarter tank and pass emissions Just need to solder the right connection on it Also mildly irritating the spring clip holding the manual window crank to the driver s door sprung itself at some point recently meaning I m constantly having to pick the handle up off the floor and re attach it Add to this the armrest broke off that door last year and I ve been using a
