Austin Fields, a senior from Northview High School, won first place recently in Ivy Tech Community College Wabash Valley’s Automotive Skills Contest.

More than 150 students attended the annual event, and 14 select juniors and seniors from the region competed in the contest.

The competition consisted of a written test and a rotation through six stations, Engine Measurement, Electrical, Steering & Suspension, Parts ID, Information Worksheet, and Engine Performance in the Automotive Lab to demonstrate their knowledge of automotive technology. Other students attending toured the facility, visited with Ivy Tech faculty and staff, and visited with representatives from automotive companies about educational and job opportunities in the automotive field.

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.
