Q: Where are you from and what did you do before opening your business?
A: I am originally from Southern California, but have been living here and in this business in the East Valley for more than 20 years.
Q: Why did you open your business in this community?
A: The Ahwatukee area has a great group of people and I enjoy meeting them and having the opportunity to meet their auto service needs.
Q: How did you get the idea to open your business?
A: I raced cars and enjoyed the mechanical work. I also worked in customer service for the airlines. It was a great fit for me.
Q: What type of merchandise/services do you sell?
A: No appointment, fast oil changes, transmission fluid flushes, fuel injection services, air and cabin filters, belts and hoses, differential fluid changes, wiper blades, tire rotations and power steering fluid changes.
Q: What does your business have in store for the future?
A: We will soon expand our services to include air conditioning services, coolant flushes and other diagnostic and mechanical repairs.
Q: Anything else you want the community to know about you or your business?
A: I am an owner operator available to our customers on the premises - rare in this business. I don't have my employees on commission so there are no high-pressure sales.
