Automotive History: My father was in the Gulf gas station business and a used car dealer. Later, dad became a partner in the Ziebart rustproofing business in the early 1960's. Consequently, I began my career at age 10 detailing cars in our driveway. I worked for 2 Chrysler dealers and then as a mechanic until my brother and I purchased the family Ziebart business in 1984. Our shop provided the venue for me to restore my first 300 along with some juke boxes, coke machines, gas pumps and even a Dodgem Car.
