Default Young and Hungry to Work

Hey my name is Alex. Im from northern New Jersey and im 17 years old. I have been working on my 1969 camaro for a long time now with my dad and i dont love anything more than cars. Anything with motors has always interested me and i love to figure out how things work and also how to make them work BETTER. Our camaro is turning out really nice and i owe it all to my dad for teaching me and having the faith in me to really do things on my own with little guidance. I know this car in and out now iand could probably put it together or take it apart myself. Im a senior in high school and graduating in late june. Im going to be going into the NAVY special forces(SWCC) and im going to be enlisting as a mechanic. Ever since watching guys like Chip Foose and beign exposed to the classic car scene, i have been mezmorized. I am lookin for a job with anyone near Bergen County New Jersey. I am a great worker and i am hungry to learn everything i can before i go to the NAVY because when i come back i hope to start my own business. If anyone is near me and has a shop i would love to come and work. I just love learning more about the industry and i am willing to work really hard because i love these cars. Thank alot for your time, Alex.

Have you ever thought about going to a tech school? That could be a sure proof way into the industry?

Default tech school

My co-worker's son graduated from a tech school in Houston last summer. He was recruited by a Mercedes dealership. He is 20, doing what likes and making money. Schools are all about getting out what you put in. My2cents.

Also look at the University of Northwestern Ohio (where i currently attend)

Has anyone heard of Dave Morgan? yes, that is our steering and suspension teacher. They teach you what you need to know for the normal dealer/shop work and then once your good at that, they teach you the racing aspect. If you want to learn more about it, PM me and i will give you more information as they are not a sponsor.
