Business Background

  • At the age of 19 I started working in a car stereo store. This was the time that 4 tracks were on the way out and 8 tracks were the new thing.
  • At that time I was Dr. Watts  your car stereo doctor
  • I designed the first car stereo enclosed sound room
  • I imported the most powerful amp (76 Watts) + it had bass and treble controls and a head phone jack.
  • At the age of 29 started Cadillac parts as a hobby. I found at that time I needed a right hand bumper end for a 1954. The price was $200. I could buy a whole car for that price. Sold the choice parts and scraped the rest.
