Scott began his career in the automotive industry piecing together cars and pickups getting as much horsepower out of every used swap meet find or junkyard part while in high school in SW Iowa. Having limited resources financially he squeezed the most out of every engine keeping a rebuild kit on hand with spare bearings of various sizes for a spare crankshaft in the event of the occasional catastrophic failure. Financial resources being very meager the alternative resources of knowledge and abilities came into play assembling 351 Cleveland engines early in the quest for more then migrating to 428, 429 and then 460 cubic inch displacement Ford power plants. Braking systems during those years and poor suspensions made for terrifying experiences as the horsepower mounted.
Fast forward nearly 4 decades, a handful of bad decisions in the interim repairing heavy trucks, lawn mowers and everything in between the bad decisions landing him in Denver turned in to one of the best decisions made in his career. Finding his niche in the “Fussy European Market” as his typical response for his trade, he now works on most European makes and models performing every task including service work, ZF transmission repairs, NAG transmission repairs, drive ability diagnostics and major engine repairs. Don’t ask him to do tires as the shop would hemorrhage financially as the last round of tires cost a TPMS sensor and required nearly two hours of his time.
When not at work you will find Scott in an Automotive Imports jersey and bibs riding his bicycle by himself, in a group or on a tandem with a friend or one of several blind friends keeping fit and enjoying the outdoors. Scott tends to put more miles on one of many bicycles during the year as the average national consumer does their automobile.
