Why We Do What We Do


We work on cars for 5-6 days a week with the goal of building a superior automotive repair shop model!

 We have seen how quality maintenance is done in the aviation world and understand that many of these practices are completely possible in the automotive maintenance world.

In fact, there are automotive shops who do practice quality techniques and we would happily take our cars to them.  However, there aren't very many and, usually, their quality depends entirely on one mechanic being there.

We have seen quality in the aviation world delivered in scale and by many different mechanics.  The aviation mechanic system does not depend on a single good mechanic.  It's a system, a culture, and it's doable here.

We believe in a scalable quality automotive service!  An idea that can travel.

For now, from a more remote location and with minimal overhead, we have the time and space to dream, and to build, and to fix your car!
