Don- Find a shop where you would like to work and see if they will let you work after school sweeping up, washing cars, and shagging parts. Will be much easier after you get a driver's license. Like Brian said, take all the math and physics courses you can so you can get a start on understanding gear ratios, electricity and circuits, etc. See if your community college offers courses on auto maintenance that you might be able to take in the evening, even while still in high school.
Make a name for yourself as a go getter and the shop where you are helping should be willing to move you up and give you some on the job training. Everybody starts at the bottom initially. There are all kinds of how to books in the public library. Good way to cure insomnia and learn something at the same time.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
