Dale is a Troy, Michigan resident since 1988 and works in the GMPT Cranktrain Analysis department analyzing piston pins and crankshafts. He also writes occasional auto-related articles for the GM Fastlane blog. Recent articles: http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/?p=6178 Northstar Engine - Long may you run! http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/?p=6474 2012 Chevy Sonic - Take Two, They're Small (but Sweet!) http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/?p=6630 Sonic Boom Forecast http://fastlane.gmblogs.com/?p=6714 Captured Test Fleet SWAT Team - Sweating the Details Dale has worked in the transportation industry since 1979 at Caterpillar and GM. Since 1984, he’s been a member of SAE, the professional society for mobility engineers. His opinions come from his life and work experiences and are not the official position of General Motors. He holds a BSME and MSME from Purdue University, at least five U.S. patents and has several pending. Like auto mechanics and most small business owners, engineers solve problems for a living with data, logic, creativity and common sense. His first article about the Northstar engine gave him a new appreciation for how difficult it is to write a good news story. Hours of preparation, checking sources and getting photo permissions went into an article that is read in a few minutes. Since then he’s gotten the Fastlane recipe down and he can do it quicker. He enjoys writing about his profession and it feels good to give back to the company that has put bread on his family’s table for more than 30 years. One does not have to be an expert in a particular field to spot wasteful spending. One of Dale's pet peeves is a separate tax for each expense. Another is the wasting of Other People's Money with no accountability (e.g., the Troy Council spending U.S. taxpayer money for the Transit Center when there was a lower cost alternative to fix up what we had in Birmingham) or the mandating of spending from the top with no funding. Private sector people have a profit motive that causes them to want to solve problems. Unfortunately in the public sector, many have no real desire to solve the problem because keeping it open keeps them in power. Raised in the United Methodist Church, Dale helped plant Troy’s Kensington Community Church in 1990. He was ordained an Orthodox Presbyterian Church deacon in 2001 after a year’s training in the Westminster Catechism and church history. Now a member of a church which belongs to The Gospel Coalition, he has an appreciation for all branches of the historic Christian faith (Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant) and other faiths which share many of the same principles. He supports freedom of religion and defends the open forum for all beliefs that America has long enjoyed. He opposes syncretism, which tends to paper over differences, saying we all believe exactly the same when we don’t.
