About Bruce Abbott

I was born and raised in the little town of Eastbrook, in downeast Maine in 1952. We lived on a subsistence farm and raised chickens and pigs, grew a garden, cut firewood, and generally supported ourselves. My dad was a mechanic, and the first in the area to attend the Lincoln mechanics school in Boston before World War Two. I've been a mechanic for over 40 years; if it burns a petroleum product I have probably worked on it.
