From the Oak Forest Patch website:

Mr. Jerry Ward, Auto Mechanics Teacher at Oak Forest and Bremen High Schools set out on a journey with 40 Auto Mechanic students, to discover the world of work. Their first stop was Central Illinois Trucks (CIT) Kenworth in Mokena. They met the owner and several employees who took them on a tour of the facility and discussed the importance of an education and what it takes to facilitate an operation such as theirs. CIT currently employs 45 mechanics and are adding a third shift and weekend shift. The next stop was Universal Technical Institute (UTI) in Lisle.

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.
