I started Ahooga.Com in July 1996 so that I could learn more about the Ford Model-A because I wanted to get one as my hobby or project to spend time on. Here I am 20 years later, one divorce later, raised my children and married to my beautiful wife Laurabeth for 16 years now. I still don't have the money to get my Model-A because it seems to always be needed elsewhere. It hasn't reduced my want, just my ability to have! Some day I will have a Model-A Ford to ride the roads in...maybe soon as I near retirement.
I make my living as an Electrical Engineer for
Schlumberger in Sugar Land, Texas where I work designing nuclear based downhole oil well logging equipment.
I have been with the company for over 38 years and I have always worked in engineering where I have done design, testing, programming and managing. I have written manuals, taught many schools around the world on hardware and software operation of various oil well logging tools. I have electronics and hardware design and trouble-shooting experience and have done quite a bit dealing with the mechanical side of tool designs as well in our tough high temperature and high pressure environment. I am nearing retirement and quieter days with Laurabeth.
My hobbies besides being the designer of the Ahooga web site include woodworking (not enough time) and antiques. My passion however lies with the antiques and of course Model-A Fords.
I'm the father of three wonderful boys who are out on their own. I married Laurabeth, my wonderful wife in Nov. 2001 who has three children of her own. All are out on their own. We have three grandson's now.
The many great people I have met and have become friends with since starting this web site in 1996 has nothing but enriched my life and knowledge of the world of Model-A's and even though I started it as a learning experience and 'STILL' don't own my own Model-A Ford my plans are to still find the car of my dreams someday...
