Since he was a child in Stafford, Missouri, Carl has been around the auto repair. His stepfather would buy people's old cars, repair them, and then sell them for a profit. Being around a skilled auto mechanic piqued his interest and he got a job in auto repair right after high school. He's been in the industry ever since and in 2008 bought an auto repair shop, cleaned it up, and hired the most adept auto mechanics he could find. Business has been growing and thriving ever since.
Not only do we have a genuine passion for auto repair, but we also are deeply dedicated to our community.
