From Loyd Brumfield’s article on The Dallas Morning News website:

When Oliver Aguilar’s daughter told him she wanted to work on cars, it “kind of broke my heart,” he said.

“She could probably write her own ticket in college with soccer.”

Instead, 18-year-old Brianna Aguilar wanted to see what’s under the hood.

So she does, as one of about a dozen female students who who take automotive technology courses at Duncanville High School.

“There are women [in the automotive industry], but they mostly work in the front office,” Brianna Aguilar said. “I want to be in the back and work on engines.”

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.
