About Dave Schwaab
Biography:
I had a Mk III Roadster kit before which I sold unbuilt because my son decided to go back to college. Now he is a software engineer at Comcast and I have just retired from the Delaware River & Bay Authority where I worked for over 37 years as a mechanic at the Delaware Memorial Bridge maintenance garage. Time to get back to thinking about my retirement Cobra plan!
