My family and I have been going here and suggesting it to our friends for over 15 years because their very reasonable prices, attention to detail, and reliability. They call around to find the best prices for parts, and go the extra mile. --- Diane C.

Reviewers Comments:

You won't be able to find any one more honest and inexpensive. The atmosphere and the prices are from a time warp from the 1950's! I ALWAYS pay him more than he asks for fear he'll go out of business. --reviewer #56120, 2004

I was very conflicted about sharing this resource with the rest of the world!!! This is a one (and a half) person shop from somewhere out the past (1950s?)! This includes the prices too. This mechanic is so inexpensive that I almost always pay him more for fear that he'll got out of business!!!! Besides, anyone this honest and fair just deserves more! The "garage" is an old quansit (SP?) hut. He isn't able to do work that requires removing an engine since he now works alone (except for input from his knowledgable sister). If I could, I would have him do all of my car repair and maintenance!!!! --reviewer #56117, 2004
