Housed in a former antique auto museum, we like to think we're making the previous owner's proud. While the cars that previously filled our 6,000 square foot shop represented some of the greatest achievements of the world's automotive minds past and present, the work we do today ensures our friends, family and neighbors can depend on their vehicles for getting them to work, school or the airport in time for a holiday flight. All mechanics will tell you that they're honest and trustworthy. All mechanics will tell you that they do great work. However, not all mechanics have built and nurtured positive relationships with their communities for three decades. We have.
