The California Driving Series

The California Driving Series came from my love for California and cars.  I was born in CA and grew up in Los Angeles. I have travelled to many parts of the world and I do believe CA is the most beautiful state. Florida would be my second choice.  

My love for cars came at an early age. I used to be a child who would love to take things apart to see how they worked and put them back together. When I was 20 the water pump in my car broke and the mechanic wanted $110.00 to fix it. Well, I had just spend my entire savings on summer trip to Europe and that was just too much for me. So I went to the library and got a manual on the car I had and learned how to change the water pump myself. Yeah, I went to Pep Boys and bought the part, which was on sale by the way for $10.00! Yes, that's all it cost me to change my water pump and I felt a great sense of accomplishment!

I was hooked on auto mechanics so when my friend's truck broke down, I was there to help him rent a pulley and take that engine apart to replace it.

This series combines my love for CA and anything associated with cars. This series will evolve I'm sure.
