“The more things change, the more they stay the same” - A. Karr.
So, what to do? Remember the past, is what I say. Because nothing really has changed in the way things work. Only in the way we look at things.
I’m a technician, high school shop teacher, writer and now an automotive technical trainer who always keeps referring to things from the past, applying them to the day’s cars. I try to make things simple because it really is. So I’m resurrecting a number of articles I wrote a long time ago to show how far the industry has come – or not – in the last generation. Current themes and innovations will be mixed in too. So will how-to’s and other stuff.
Most of all, to be a great technician, or a great customer keep a sense of humour and remember that there are a million ways for the car to fail and only one way to get it to run right. What are the chances?
