I applaud this concept, although it is hardly a new idea. There used to be a place like this in Salt Lake 30 years ago. You rented a work bay and had use of tools, etc. I helped my buddy change some kingpins in his old Ford van there.

Sounds impressive, there is a good chance I will show up there sometime with my old Jeep.

Great Idea

This is a great idea, something I've always needed. I'm there -

In 1957

I purchased my first car, a 48 Merc and used a place run by Johnny Mercer in Compton, Calif. to change the transmission that had lost the first gear. He was a retired mechanic who opened a similar place and gave free advice to those that needed it. No online look up then. For a 17 year old, it was a great experience and confidence builder and I couldn't beat having a junk yard transmission installed for less than $50.

looking to open one with economy the way it is and dealerships closing prime buildings for this venture seem to be one way to help and get helped all in one
