Passively Looking for Considering Automotive or Related Technologies jobs and is willing to relocate for the right position.
When I look at the Skill/Qualifications, I have done everything except OH on transmissions. [Best left to specialists] My work life started with working at Barreto Granite while in HS and then transitioned paint and body work and a 1970 Challenger RT. Moving to Texas, after a 3 yrs of floating through different trades, I resumed collision repair and painting and achieved Recertified Master Collision and Refinish. We preferred working with highend cars and customs and using highend materials. I had actually started a paint in body with a small tool box and rented space and a partner around 1981. We parted around 1984 and I continued in P & B doing collision and painting solo and around 1986 joined Texas Collision Center. In 1993, the Texas Collision Center was closed, and I took the bills and the space and changed the name to Texas Auto Service Center located in Sachse. Business grew for 10 years, and then suffered loosing two techs to non work related injuries. Seeing I was back on the line again, my wife and I decided to find property to own to continue in Automotive Service which brings us to our current location in Wylie and 2017 East Stone Road in 2003. Since then I have worked solo, still servicing vehicles, but looking for something more fitting... If I were to be passionate about anything in automotive, it would be to see the EV technologies come to world. I am excited for Tesla, Nissan, Chevrolet to be early players along with others. Sad to see BetterPlace fail. :( I own a 1981 Lectric Leopard that I have tinkered with that helps me to understand the EV's better.
