His great grandparents, grandparents, dad, cousins, uncles, and aunts worked for GM and his interest has been with them since childhood. The "Boys Under the Hood" presentation highlights the lives and stories of local automotive pioneers Durant, Dort, Buick, Chrysler, and others. Join us for an exhilarating ride through history!
