I am a diesel mechanic and technician, former auto exec who tinkers a lot.
I have worked on and owned many Mercedes, Citroens, Volvos and VW181 cars, got my first 451 Saturday.
Would like to meet or contact other smart car owners in Michigan and Ohio, probably will need some part sources.
I plan to base line the car and change some things, like same sized wheels and tires all the way around, plus may make some other small parts and tools for use by owners.
I have the big operators manual in .pdf, would like a real one, and interested in contacting other local owners. I'm more a techie than a social butterfly. Have made many small tools over time, have two patents in the pipeline, mostly for fun.
