I started working on gas-powered law motors at age 13, which led my father to find me a job at a local gas station in Danbury, CT. The owner noticed I was purchasing new tools each week the tool truck came, and so he allowed me to do some tune-ups and other work. I also worked on my parents’ cars, and then at age 17, I purchased a 1967 GT Mustang, removed the engine, and rebuilt it.
I drove that Mustang out to Denver, CO to attend automotive college for six months. After graduating in the spring of 1978, I got a job at a Chevy dealership, and then moved on to a Subaru dealership, where I spent the next 20 years.
In 1999, I purchased a two-bay repair shop in Georgetown, CT and ran it for 1 ½ years. Then my wife mentioned a shop was for sale right here in our hometown of Sandy Hook. Within two months, a deal was made and now we have five bays, five techs, and two service advisors.
