The interest for cars remained and in 1995. I made an old dream come true, and bought a Morgan, an old British open sports car from 1965. It fulfilled the aspect of exploring the nature from a car with English classic style and being able to restore and learn from bottom up the car technology.

The idea, was to upgrade it with modern engine computer control, fuel injection and turbo charging to learn from theory to practice via practical implementation.

The best way to check the level of your achieved skills, is to explain the stuff for others, in a structured way.

Mythological Background:
Long ago in Ethiopia Cassiopeia have been the wife of Cepheus and the mother of Andromeda. Because she thought herself more beautiful than the daughters of Nereus, a god of the sea, she challenged the anger of the god Poseidon. To punish her, her daughter was chained to a rock of the coast as a sacrifice for a sea monster. Andromeda was saved from death by Perseus. (Publius Ovidius Naso: Metamophoses, IV)

To learn humility Cassiopeia was banned to the sky hanging half of the time head downward.
