Stephan has been working on cars since he purchased his first vehicle when he was just 14 years old. Stephan took the skills he learned in his Texas backyard and turned them into a career in automotive repair. Moving to California in the late 80's Stephan landed a job at an independent Firestone shop in Sacramento and worked there for over 8 years. While employed at Firestone he went to school to "fine tune" his skills.
After working as an auto mechanic for over 20 years, he decided to open his own shop in 2002. Since then Stephan outgrew the two bay shop near Sacramento City College and found a much larger building even closer to Sac. City College.
Stephan's daily driver is a '01 Audi S4. Second up is his '90 VW Vanagon Syncro Westfalia.
