With the 25th Annual PRI Trade Show here, it again takes me away from writing and back into the mode of discovery and learning. It also means sharing news, as I've been invited to attend as a member of the press to cover PRI's great event in Orlando, and I look forward to bringing you info in upcoming weeks.

For instance, already underway is the great AETC (Advanced Engineering Technology Conference) meeting already underway. This is where professional race engine builders arrive early for the special conference. It is the oldest and most respected conference on new race engine technology in racing, and is the only conference in the US designed specifically for professional race engine builders. Hundreds of professional race engine builders attend the AETC, where they learn new speed secrets from the pro's; spend personal time with individual speakers and meet with other race engine builders from around the country.
Guy Algar and I have always been advocates for continuing education. We've both been in professional positions where being up-to-date with current technologies and trends is extremely useful. It is something we've continued in our quest for providing the very best in performance upgrades and restoration work on classic cars, muscle cars, street rods, hot rods and vintage trucks we work on for our customers.
There are all types of training that one can receive, whether it is through books, manuals, magazines, collaboration with other experts, seminars and conferences. We believe it is essential to keep your knowledge fresh. I look forward to reporting some of the great things discovered during our events.
