Listing of Tech Articles I Have Available

Over the past 30 years of building, tuning and racing GTOs and Corvettes, I have had the opportunity to do a bit of technical writing for many of the popular magazines and technical publications. I've been privileged to have been involved in dyno sessions at Westech Performance Group with former Hot Rod Editor Matt King and Dyno Legend Steve Brule, and I've been involved in tuning and racing with Ken Crocie (H-O Racing), Milt Schornack, and Dan Whitmore. I stay in contact with, and share information with, other automotive authors, such as Duke Williams, John Hinckley, Hib Halvorson, Henry Olsen and Cliff Ruggles, and I continue to write original articles based on my own testing and observations of the trends in this hobby.

Although many of these articles are specifically targeted at the Corvette community, the technical information with regards to carburetors, ignition timing, and general tuning are universally applicable to all V8 Musclecars, and have direct application to GTOs as well as Corvettes. I make these articles available to enthusiasts for their personal use at no cost - all you have to do is drop me an e-mail request for any article you may find useful or interesting.

I don't post any of my articles on the Internet: I revise my articles frequently based on new data, updated part numbers, and updated technical information, so any articles you see written by me and posted by somebody on the 'Net are generally outdated and obsolete - don't use any of my articles that you have not obtained directly from me. I have even seen some of my articles that have been altered and edited, and many of the ones I see posted have even had my Copywrite removed from the headings. I make this information available to true enthusiasts to make this hobby a little more fun for everyone, but we all know there are some real jerks out there who take advantage of the good-hearted attempts that we all make...

The following is a listing of the current articles I have available. If anyone is interested in this info, simply drop me an e-mail request for the specific article(s) you have an interest in and I'll send you the current version(s).

Sorry about the link, go to the search feature up above and do a search for
