John Rafert has had many jobs over his 70 plus years. A bartender, copy boy, teacher, owned businesses, an X-Ray tech, and worked in a level 1 trauma center, and a professor of radiologic sciences. He’s also been a car guy his whole life. Born and raised in Indianapolis, that’s pretty common. In his retirement, John’s taken up a new challenge. Learning how to create 3D automotive pieces, and automotive related products using Computer Graphics. He started with the demonstration principles of radiography and migrated in to cars and other objects he found interesting. By studying coach builders and styling houses including Pinifarina, and past Cars Yeah guest Raffi Minasian, John takens his passion for cars in a new direction proving you can indeed teach an old dog new skills.
