From the owner, Danny Whitehead: I love cars! I started working on cars as soon as I was able to drive. Growing up, I always loved tinkering and fixing things, and I still do! I got into the automotive industry when I was 17-years-old, working at a service station. Later, I had jobs at other repair shops, ranging from car repair to large trucks and equipment. Eventually, I was able to open my own repair shop in Santa Paula, my hometown, and I couldn’t be happier to provide a valuable service to the community.
