Shop Technician

T.J. came on board with us in October of 2013. He was new to this industry when he came to us, and has developed well. He has become a talented Shop Technician, removing, installing, and doing general work on Transmissions, axles, bearings, clutches, fluid changes etc. In addition to this, he has a good working knowledge of computers and this makes his understanding of electronically controlled Transmissions better. T.J. is a very outgoing person and loves to talk Mustangs, especially Shelby GT 500's!!
