How To Make Your Car last forever pdf

I was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1956. As a child I ran to my bedroom window every time a loud car passed by on the streets below.

One unusually hot summer evening I stared out the window, mesmerized by the image of a 1966 Pontiac GTO as it sat at the light waiting to turn left. The car whined and roared as the driver revved the engine.

In retrospect, the sound of that revving engine was like a large piece of juicy bait, and I was a famished large-mouthed bass in a raging stream.

I was hooked. I would pursue cars in every way I could, starting with 1/24th scale slot car racing. I purchased cars, worked on cars, and raced cars well into my early twenties.

To support this habit I had to work to earn money. Somebody told me once to choose my vocation based on what I love to do. The decision was easy. I would work on cars for a living. In 1970, I got my first job working on cars at a gas station in the small town of Willingboro, New Jersey.

I stayed in and around the auto repair industry either as a technician, a service manager, or an auto service center manager until 1989, when I started my own business as a tool and equipment dealer.

I sold tools in a territory in New Jersey for about a year and then decided to move to western New York to the small city of Jamestown. One day in late 1990, I walked into a repair shop and saw the owner wringing his hands, upset because he had to make a call to a customer.

He had given the customer a quote to replace a timing belt in her car. The car, a 1984 Ford Escort with a four-cylinder engine, was equipped with an interference engine.

When the timing belt breaks with this type of engine, the valves collide with the pistons and cause major engine damage. This is exactly what had happened to her car.

The technician was terribly distressed because he quoted the customer $225 to replace the belt when, in fact, the repair would cost the customer more than $2,000 because the engine had to be replaced.

As I watched this fellow pace the floor, wrenched with anxiety over a phone call, I had what I like to call an “a-ha!” moment – a realization that there was a need for a better relationship between the public and the auto repair industry.

I decided right then that a radio show, designed to educate motorists on auto repair and maintenance, would meet that need. Such a radio show would be a great public service to those who listened to it.

So in January 1991 America’s Car Show with Tom Torbjornsen was born. The mission statement of the show was this.. How To Make Your Car last forever, Tom Torbjornsen
