After working for University Motors, and John Twist, I have learned the best process and now I have the ability to buy new equipment and focus my energy directly at a few select services. While once I was switching between carburetors, starters, and generators to full restorations of complete cars, I can now do the work I am best at, the work I enjoy the most. With the recent and final closure of University Motors LTD. I decided to open my own shop. I went my own way while Forest Johnson, Curt Sanier, and Mike Blackport moved out to be part of Forest's company Rusty Moose Garage. 

What's more than the last decade of serving this great community for more than ten years?

I am starting on my own at what seems to be a great time and I hope that I can take on the work load that some of our great champions had carried for years. Many of our great shops, and their owners, are closing in on great retirement times and I hope that with all of the work that I have done over the years you will trust me as you have trusted them.

My mission is to be a trusted and reliable pillar holding up the quality of service that has come before. I am here to stay and here to serve.
