At age 12, Lloyd began mowing lawns. he saved his money.

At age 13 he bought his first truck, a 1953 Ford.

The truck was the catalyst for Lloyd’s mechanical Journey.

A few days (or decades) later, Lloyd still has his ’53 Ford along with a few other custom build projects, and some happy customers.

Check out the Classics page for a sweet ride with some sweet rides.


After receiving scholarship offers to study mechanical engineering, Lou opted for a more hands on approach…the US Army.

While you won’t hear much from him about his army days, you will hear more than you expected about the maintenance, repair or modification of your vehicle.

This goes double for anything with a carburetor.

Grab a cup of coffee and settle in, Lou has seven vehicles to chat about, and only two drivers to keep them warm.

The Classics page has his latest project, a ’58 Chevrolet Apache.



This is the classic story of a mustache that ‘got here as quick as I could.’

At 14 years old, Pat moved to Texas (from NYC) and began turning wrenches for his Uncle, primarily rebuilding engines.

After puberty, a mustache took over Pat’s body and has been using it as life support ever since.

The mustache brings more than 40 years of automotive intelligence.

If you’re in the market for a mustache, this particular specimen enjoys grilled Boar’s Head ham sandwiches, getting the sand brushed out of it after long walks on the beach, and an evening with Netflix.

The mustache also enjoys three types of Miller Lite: Free, Open and Cold.


Roller-Rocker, as Lloyd affectionately calls her, is the shop toddler, or shoddler.

While Ro-Ro is capable of walking, she prefers to crawl because it’s faster, and she loves ‘fast’ and ‘loud.’

She is particularly fond of rumbly V8s…which is the smile you see in the photo on the left.




Ben has what the rest of the guys wish they could get back…youth. 

When Ben isn’t in college crunching numbers in accounting class, he’s at the shop to get your oil change and brake jobs done in an effective and efficient manner.

Well, that’s what we’d like to tell you, but his attention gets diverted to rebuilding the old ’53 Ford we discussed earlier.

There’s just something about a V8 under the hood of a classic pickup that makes men postpone everything else they’re supposed to do.



On any given afternoon, you can find Toby sniffing around the shop.

While he is a long time, good standing client…he also keeps the grunts laughing with jokes and stories.

Aside from his USMC regalia, you’ll know he is around when you see a guy with a cigar.

“My rule of life prescribed as an absolutely sacred rite smoking cigars and also the drinking of alcohol before, after and if need be during all meals and in the intervals between them.” – Winston Churchill
