Written by Ronald S. Mullisen, PhD an emeritus professor of mechanical engineering at Cal Poly, Ronnie's Roadside Repairs is a collection of stories about automotive repair adventures.
From driving a '31 Model A Ford (with a ’49 Olds engine) across the country and up to Alaska, to turning a ’57 Chevy V-8 into a V-7, to making a ’60 Corvair run with 4 pistons instead of 6 in Baja California, to fixing the "automatic-stick-shift-transmission" on a '75 VW Karmann Ghia on his honeymoon in Yosemite Valley, Mullisen's stories are anything but commonplace. Complete with vintage photos, these detailed accounts of roadside fixes impart a powerful message about living a life full of repair.
