About Wayne

Wayne R. Dempsey has been working and playing with mechanical machines all his life.  In college, Wayne earned both a BS and MS degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, specializing in flexible manufacturing technology.  His introduction to automobiles began when he raced with the MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Racing Team.

After a few years building communications satellites for Hughes Space and Communications, Wayne left to pursue an entrepreneurial calling.   Literally starting in their garages, Wayne and his partner Tom Gould founded Pelican Parts, an internet-based Porsche parts company.  Today, Pelican Parts is thriving with the growth in Internet technology.  Wayne currently maintains the site and has written most of the technical articles that are featured on the Pelican Parts website, www.pelicanparts.com.

Wayne currently owns a 1982 911SC coupe, a 1960 356B coupe, a 1984 944, and a 1974 914-6 conversion with a 2.7L 911S motor installed inside.  Wayne is currently working on an adjunct book to this one focusing on rebuilding the 911 engine.
