The Wrench Whore
Wrench Whore - the name


I've had a number of people ask how it came about I am known as the Wrench Whore......

Remember the 98 lb kid from the 60s? My family moved from Camarillo to Thousand Oaks, I graduated from High School, attended some college and went to work as a meter reader for the Edison Comapny.

This trip down memory lane is somewhat complex as there are details which must be shared for the story to have it's full impact.

While I work on the details....

Let's just say that I was drinking with a few motor heads in Sterling Buell's restoration shop when someone said, "what do you know, you're just a cycle slut". I replied "Sluts give it away. I stopped wrenchin' for free years ago". Sterling said "that makes you a whore.... Wrench Whore".

That happened in the 70s.......
