Serving Bellflower for the past 70 years

Serving Bellflower for the past 70 years

It seems like it was just yesterday I would come to the shop as a kid and see my grandfather Leo and my Dad Joe working on cars and being amazed at what they could do. I started coming to work with my dad at about the age 8, helping clean the shop, learning how to take stuff apart....any maybe put stuff back together. I loved coming to work with my dad, every day was new adventure.  Cars have changed soooooooo much in the time I started coming here to today, not just a little but leaps and bounds.  When I was a kid I would change spark plugs, install and set points and adjust carburetors was a typical day.  Today we rarely do any of that, it's all about  computes, codes and wiring concerns.  Many cars and trucks now have over 10 control modules making your vehicle do what is suppose to do in the background, without you ever knowing it.

Where has the year gone? The kids are almost out of school and summer is just around the corner. Summer always seems like it should be time to rest, but is it? If you have kids you arerunning around more in the summer than you do than you do the rest of the year. Keeping the kids entertained is hard work. ​ This summer I have big plans for my oldest child, he is currently 15 and I found him his first car, the only problem is that it needs a engine. I want my son to know the value of a vehicle so we are going to replace the engine together in my spare time. I feel it will be a great learningexperience for him to do his own car repairs. At least that is the plan, he has no plans to follow his great grandfather, his grandfather and Dad in the family business of auto repair.
