About Alice Pye

On a sunny April Fools’ Day, Alice bought a stick shift 1963 Ford F-100 on whim with absolutely no idea how to even begin to change a tire let alone drive a manual transmission vehicle. Since that fateful day, she has rebuilt the transmission (twice), swapped out the engine (also twice), rebuilt the carburetor (at least twice), rewired a majority of the electrical system, and somehow figured out how to drive a manual transmission that’s half a century old across the entire country, from California to New Orleans where she resides now. Alice is now an expert explainer for all things car care. You can follow her on Instagram at @alicepyescrustbuckets as well as on her website, www.alicepyewriter.com.
