There's a quarter mile of country road between the garage and my home, including a real steep gully. I once had to drive the car to the garage with the parking brake wedged on and the donut just dragging and leaving a gouge on the shoulder. He's a better mechanic than I am a driver.

Bob is a GREAT mechanic!! He's smart and seems to enjoy a challenge. Prices are very reasonable.

I have taken various vehicles to Marv's garage over the past 10 years for various mechanical problems. He's honest and dedicated; he won't give up until he locates and fixes your problem. Now that Bob spends more time at the garage, I believe he will continue the legacy.

OK. I have known Marvin (the dad) and Bob (the son) for decades. They have worked on several different makes of cars/trucks for me. They always do a good job. It may take a few days and that's because they respond to emergency calls. If you are stranded they will help you. Marv is older and working less, so Bob is on his own a lot. Bob is not a real people person. He is reserved and does not tolerate stupid people so don't walk in and expect him to drop everything to help you. Say hi and introduce yourself. Give him a few minutes to finish what he is doing and to ask you what you need. His honestly and skills are worth the wait and good manners you use.
