[Music] [Music] some of my hobbies are camping brushing up on my survival skills modeling and not modeling isn’t like look at me modeling but bottling is like model cars and I met him through John my friend that worked here told me we needed another good tick so I came over and talked to him and I’ve been what’s all since oh I’ve been interested in cars my entire life my grandpa used to have a shop out by his house and my uncle Mack used to build a lot of really cool really cool stuff and then I had a stepdad who was a diesel mechanic and I started learning from him picking up bits and pieces from there so I really got into it about 15 and have been doing it ever since I kind of specialize in cars I know a lot of people might find that funny but I have the ability to be able to do really big jobs look at something and figure out the best way to do it even though the computer might say do it this way I can actually do it faster doing it a different way I like working on the higher-end cars I have a Ferrari torn down over there right now that I am doing but our bread and butter is the everyday cars that people drive so just being able to get in and rinse on a car I feel is a pretty good day I tell you one of the things that I like working here the best about working here is the people there’s a lot of good people that work here and it’s very rare you can come into a shop especially one this big that employs as many people and just feel like you’re part of the family and a lot of these people I’ve worked with them long enough that they are my family I’ve worked with them quite a long time the amount of volume that we do we’re always super busy so that’s really nice you’re not always sitting around twiddling Donn’s and again probably the higher-end cars that we actually get to see and get to get to work on on a daily basis I have been in situations myself where I’ve had car issues and not been able to fix them one of the main reasons I actually got into turning wrenches in mechanicing is because my mom and my two older sisters hearing them go to mechanic shops and just getting worked over by dishonest people I’m gonna learn how to do that just because I know that my mom and my sisters and my grandma aren’t the only ones in that situation so having an honest tech and honest mechanic to be able to look at your car and tell you what it actually needs as opposed to trying to sell you a bunch of crap that it doesn’t need I feel it’s important my goal for the future is to one day run a shop either of my own or absol’s hopefully that that comes to fruition this is a quality of work that we do we are very honest here we’re not gonna sell you something that you don’t need and if it’s something that you feel that you don’t need we can show you why it does need it the people that work here are great they’re always gonna be super helpful we’re trustworthy people so and we stand behind our work so that’s a huge thing when it comes to anybody in the mechanics world so you know having a good quality tech good quality people upfront good parts good service I’m Mike Rowe and I can’t wait to work on your car here’s sols autotext [Music]
