About Hess


I am licensed to practice medicine in the State of Arkansas as a Physician and Surgeon, currently in General Practice (formerly a resident in Neurosurgery). Before I started undergraduate school to become a doctor, I was a Radio Electronics Officer in the U.S. Merchant Marine.  My undergraduate degree (Gig 'Um, Aggies!) is from Texas A&M University in Business Analysis.

I have always tinkered with cars, since I bought my first one, a 1972 Triumph GT6. Since then, I owned a ‘72 Caddy Coupe deVille (472 CI, talk about torque...), ‘72 Audi 100, ‘75 Triumph Spitfire, ‘74 Lotus Europa Special, ‘71 Ford truck, ‘67 Chevy truck, ‘47 Plymouth business coupe, '75 Ford Elite, ‘73 Mercedes 220D (with ‘71 parts car), ‘73 Triumph Boneville, ‘79 Harley FLH, ‘75 Harley XLH, '87 Toyota MR2, and the current fleet: ‘97 Toyota Camry, ‘86 Toyota Truck (315K miles), ‘86 Harley FLHT, ‘87 Harley XLH (Megasquirted, my wife’s bike), '89 Esprit Turbo, 88 Corolla AE92 with a Megasquirted 20 valve, 99 LS400.

So, you can see that I have had lots of experience working on cars. Lots of time under English dashboards, that is for sure. I also did total rebuilds on the Europa motor, the RN Truck motor and the Mercedes Diesel motor, and the 20 valve swap on the MR2 and AE92.

I sort of went from an amateur auto mechanic to God’s mechanic professionally.
