From the Green-Bay Press-Gazette:

Jaime Hernandez was in middle school when he got interested in cars.

Erik Moreno remembers learning the basics of vehicle maintenance from his dad, Heriberto, as a boy.

But it wasn’t until Green Bay East High School’s vehicle service classes got a needed tune-up from the school district and the area’s automotive industry that the two East High seniors saw working on cars as anything more than a hobby.

City Stadium Automotive, as the program is now called, this year expanded from three maintenance bays to five. The one toolbox Hernandez remembers the entire class having to share last year has multiplied and been modernized with tools used in auto shops throughout the country. The number of students enrolled in the program’s six courses has grown to about 150.

Getting nostalgic about the good old days is easy, but many forget the struggles of the day.

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.
