What kind of Field of work would i do better in?
I'm a senior, I have taken three construction classes along side with two classes of auto mechanics I excelled in both. To me personally I'm more of a hands on worker and would like to see the possible outline of jobs that I could be interested in going in to. construction
My name is Bill and I think you should look into some "green technologies" in both construction and mechanics. You might end up being one of the only people that knows how to fix a solar powered car. Imagine your on a construction project and the backhoe breaks down. Do you know what valuable asset you would be to the company if, you were the only one that could fix it! Did you know there is a self healing cement?

The new Ford 150 this year has come out with a hybrid version, 3.5 L V6. You'll probably have to take it to a dealer mechanic to have work done on it. That was like $90 to a $100 per hour last I checked.
You have a great start with the training you've had. There is already a passion in you for both! See your- self being diversified and loving your talents. There is no reason you have to stick with one or the other, but realize it will be a constant life long training for both fields.

I would say that ultimately depends on what interests you. Auto mechanics face challenging tasks now a days with all the technology and computers running these cars. Auto mechanics will always be needed to service our vehicles. The job is dirty, and your required indoors most of the time. There are also many specialty mechanics, for example: brakes, mufflers, transmissions and engines, etc.
Construction also has many specialties. You could specialize in masonry, insulation, framing, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc. Plumbing and electrical are popular fields, great pay, and we are running out of them. Being a Senior in HS, i would recommend a brief internship to narrow down which avenue suits you. There are alot of choices!
