Sympatico Autos Story: Ferrari Mechanic

Here's a short video my colleague and I produced about our community's own Mr. Newman. Those of us who know him know that "mechanic" isn't the perfect descriptor.

Enjoy.

nice video. that's not what I was expecting Newman to look like

and to call him a mechanic definitely falls short.

Newman looks like he's ready to kill you if you look at him the wrong way.

BTW, there's at least one more video to come.

Sweet video, and nice to see this from a guy a few hours away from me.

The only thing is the sound goes up to high too fast (listening to it w/headphones), but besides that.......cool video.

Surprised that the name of his shop was not mentionned in the video....

Chas- Hardly anybody as old as I am. Methuselah was my grandson. Outlived him.

Chas- Wright Brothers, crud, I taught the Pterodactyls to fly. Cannot believe I spelled that correctly on the first try.
