Brad grew up working in his parent’s bicycle shop and in the garage at home with his dad on their VW's. By high school he knew he wanted to move on to something with more power. He graduated in 2001 from Wyoming Technical Institute with a degree in both Auto and Diesel Vehicle Technology. His goal was to be Master ASE Certified by the time he was 25 and accomplished it at the age of 22. His career as an automotive technician has included working in both a dealership and in independent shops. During those years he achieved Nissan Master Certification, Nissan Electric Vehicle Certification, and completed ASE advanced certifications in Advanced Engine Performance and Underbody Specialist. He continues to hold his ASE Master Technician with Advanced Automotive certifications. Brad enjoys the challenge of electronics and diagnostic work. He has also never considered his work “just a job.” He believes God placed this as a calling on his life and is excited to bless others with excellence in repairing their vehicle.
Orv began his long automotive career second semester his senior year of high school. Bud Rogers, his Goshen High School Vocational auto mechanics teacher, placed him at Sorg Dodge. That was 1969! He started as a lube technician, then worked his way to line tech. He received his Chrysler Certification and was fortunate enough to work on all the classic muscle cars of that era. Ten years of GM dealership experience, including Showalter Buick, led to numerous GM certifications. Orv has been ASE Master Certified as a technician, parts specialist, and service adviser. Orv actually interviewed and hired Brad almost 20 years ago and they have continued a friendly, professional working relationship over the years.
