From Graham Jaehnig’s article on The Daily Mining Gazette website:

The Copper Country Intermediate School District’s Auto Tech Non-Traditional Automotive Technology Career Day is intended to encourage female students to consider automotive technology as a career. The non-traditional career day is open only to female high school students. Joe Galetto, career prep coordinator at the Auto Tech Center, said he is hoping to see more women consider the field.

“Our intent is to make it an annual thing. We’re not in it for one or two years. I think you got to build it so we’re looking at ‘okay, this is our second year, so hopefully, we’ll get 10 more students than we had last year, so that’ll have an impact. If we can continue it, it’ll grow.”

Galetto said during the 2014-15 school year, there were two female students enrolled in the Auto Tech program. This year there are four. He hopes that this year’s career day will have an impact on at least a couple of students who attend.

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.
