Abstract:  Engineers like to get their hands dirty and tinker with things during weekends after a busy week in order to relax.  For retired engineer Terry Lawell, it is natural for him to spend more time on his hobby of fixing and restoring his own sports car. In this talk, he will tell his story of accidentally jumping into a new business of restoring and selling classic sports car and his system engineering approach to each unique project. Terry received the joy of completing each project and a little profit.
