We’ve said it over and over here at Autoline: kids just aren’t into cars the way they used to be. They’d rather play with their iPhones than polish a muscle car. So if you can’t get teenagers interested in driving cars, how can you ever hope to get a new generation of kids to be mechanics? That challenge is what this month’s special Open Line guest aims to solve. Pete Raskovic is a 25+ year master technician, race mechanic and automotive educator, and we’ll be asking him what advantages there are to pursuing a career in automotive education.

Open Line is LIVE on the first Tuesday of every month at 8PM ET/5PM PT with co-hosts Michelle Naranjo of Autobytel and Chelsea Sexton, an alternative fuels advocate and lover of all things automotive. This month we were joined by guest co-host Aaron Bragman of IHS Automotive.
