Darryl traveled the world as a child due to his father's military career and landed in Lancaster, CA for his adolescent years working and riding on dirt bikes and motorcycles for hobby. His love for mechanical tinkering flowed into his high school years where his formal automotive education started. By his early 20's he was working as an apprentice for a German automotive specialist that quickly developed into lead shop mechanic and shop manager. It was about that time that he met his now wife, Jamie through mutual friends. Jamie was working at a local automotive dealership in Sanger, CA as the lead accountant and service manager. The two married in 1987, and by 1993 they were blessed with their daughter, Cortney. It wasn't until 1997 when they decided to take the leap of faith and start a business of their own.
Today, the shop has blossomed into a 6 bay facility with 4 full time technicians, an on-site payroll and accounting service, 2 service writers, and a shop Labrador to boot.
