“I was writing enormous checks to auto body shops for my collection of 1960s muscle cars. About five years ago, I decided I’d learn to do it myself, and I began taking Auto Body classes at Eastfield for my own enjoyment. I’ve finished painting three cars at Eastfield and will soon be completing the fourth, a ’74 Dodge Challenger Rallye.

“I’m proudest of my work on a ‘Starsky and Hutch’ Torino; it’s red with a lightning stripe just like the one on the 1970s cop show. It’s a fun hobby, but since the value of cars has gone up over the past several years, it’s a good investment too.

“The most important thing I’ve learned in Eastfield’s Auto Body classes is the correct use of tools and equipment. The faculty there is really top-notch. You can watch people doing body work on TV or on film, but until you actually do it, you can’t appreciate what’s involved. If you mess up, there’s a faculty member standing right there to help you fix your mistake.

“The lab is fantastic — there’s nothing you can’t do there. I’ve taken in some rusty, horrible hulks and come out of there with trophy-winning cars.”
