    Greetings,
    My name is Mark, and I am 56 years old, I have been working in the automotive industry since I was 15.
    I started as a body shop painter's helper, where I grew up in OKC.
    I moved to Denver and worked for my Brother in his shop as a Mechanic.
    I ended up owning that Business (in my early 20's) and running it into the ground.
    After that epic failure, I worked a couple of odd mechanic jobs before moving to California.
    In Cali, I worked as a dealership wrench (mostly GM) for several years.
    Then, I managed a used car recon department, an auto auction mechanic shop, a restoration shop, and a dealership collision center.
    During the recession years, I ended up going back to wrenching (at 46 years old) working on motor homes and GM medium-duty trucks.
    I am currently working as a Technical Support Specialist for medium-duty trucks, mostly supporting DPF, SCR, and GM V8 gas engines.
    I have owned several Mopars over the years.
    My first (at 16) was a GY9 72 charger SE 4002BBL with a white interior and top.
    Other cars owned-
    70 B3 Charger.
    70 B5 Charger.
    69 TX9 GTX.
    70 TX9 T/A Challenger.
    I don't want to bring out the pitchforks, so; I won't mention the atrocities committed to these vehicles.
    Currently, own a GY8 72SE; have a photo garage posted here.My 1972 SE
    Thank you for reading.

      Welcome to FABO, Mark. Post some pics of your Mopar.
      Where the heck is 'Observation, CA'? I've lived in California all my life and never heard of it.
