Anything automotive may appear here - new car reviews, car shows, editorials on automotive items, working on my cars, just about any automotive topic I want to write about. Your comments are always welcome. I encourage reprinting of my articles providing proper attribution is given and notification is provided. The picture is of Moriarty Bros. "Big Red" 1966 Comet GT. I worked at Moriarty Bros., Manchester, CT way back but had nothing to do with Big Red.
