About us: We actively participate in our community
The year was 1973. I was living in Salem, Oregon. Someone’s misfortune on Interstate 5 created a hobby and eventually a profession for me. I bought me a 1963 Porsche 356 from a very distressed driver, who’s Porsche caught on fire on Interstate 5.
What started as a hobby evolved into a project and eventually took me into a profession. This journey has sent me thru becoming a member at associations such as ASA, ASE (Automotive Service Excellence).
I took Small Business Administration course at Lane Community College and graduated. What a journey it has been. While raising three kids of my own, running the Car Service Center, wrenching under the hood of cars I managed to create a Soccer club named Cosmos which fulfilled the needs of local youths for several years.
I also served as steering committee member in Kidsports. The Soccer team “Cosmos” coached by me created junior Olympians and several other youths who are attending colleges with soccer scholarships. In cooperation with Looking Glass I also trained several youths at my business in the fine art of repairing and servicing cars. We do our share of Energy conservation and Recyclingand keeping Eugene green.
After rebuilding, repairing, replacing several Car components and spending hours under, over and everywhere in the cars, my passion for cars has still remained the same. For recreation I raft the rivers, participate in car shows , ride motorcycles, ski, fly fish, parasail, hike, crab, and fish the bays in my motor boat and go camping.
