Pishny graduated in 1991 from the same program he now leads, and says that Manhattan Area Technical College had a huge impact on his life and career. “I’ve used this knowledge in every aspect of everything I’ve done since then,” he says. “And just having this opportunity to come back and pass that knowledge along and inspire new students; has just been phenomenal.”

Last month, I purchased a 1982 Chrysler New Yorker for $1,500. The car was previously owned by a technician who was moving to Arizona. It had 67,000 original miles. It would be my “beater with a heater” for this winter.

Under the hood is a 318 V8 with a Lean Burn feedback carburetor with a rudimentary engine control module attached to the air cleaner. The system could adjust the spark advance, change metering in the carburetor and even open a solenoid to vent the evaporative emissions from the fuel tank.
