About Tom...

Tom has been around cars all his life, since his father was an auto mechanic.  In high school, his teachers trusted him to fix their cars during auto shop.  They knew it would be done right.  He worked in his father's Texaco station until his father passed away.

For the next 18 years, Tom gathered more experience by working in various dealerships and independent repair shops before opening his own shop in 1990.  Tom is well know in the area for his diagnostic expertise, quality work and fair prices.

For recreation, Tom's biggest passion is to go play in the sand dunes of Glamis, California.  He has been going to the sand dunes with his family since he was 12 years old.  It is in his blood and now it's in his daughter's blood too.  Check out his Desert Snakes website.
