In our culture automobiles are a necessary evil. Okay, maybe they are not “evil” but when you have break downs you’ll think they are!

Jeff knows a good bit about auto- mechanics and repairs, but some things are a bit much, not to mention having the right tools.

I don’t know if mechanics will be his thing or not, but after this week he knows what ‘a head and a piston’ are.
