G'mornin, I will never claim to be a mechanic nor have answers. I have turned a few wrenches in my life. I am 50-ish and my son is 14. I was given a 94 Camaro from my sister when her husband (brother-in-law) passed away a year ago. I have been trying to fix a number of things to get it operational. I have taken it to a few mechanics that have REALLY screwed me over. Just looking for experienced and knowledgeable help. Being a single dad with nobody helping me with bills, no live-in relatives, girlfriends or buddies, and recently becoming unemployed, I am tight on funds. Dont be offended when i ask "why" to answers. I see this as an opportunity to try to bond with my son and hopefully build his confidence in taking on tasks, help him learn to work on vehicles and take pride in his sweat and blood turning wrenches.

Welcome Rick. We will never be offended by you asking why. The only dumb question is the question that goes unasked.

Welcome, Rick, to the Club
No better way to learn than by asking.
