    Technically you attended what we call an "Open Garage" class, here's the link to the pictures and comments threads...

    Pictures from June 26th Open Garage at Autogeek's Show Car Garage!


    And here's your car from that event... looking good!





    "Open Garage" classes are not structured on purpose while a 101 and 102 class actually have a formal structure to them... but since we went over most of the information taught in the 101 class that day I think it would qualify for the prerequisite for attending the 102 class.

    p.s.

    I have a black convertible Mustang coming down tonight for a special project...
