Joel has 40 years experience owning, working on and restoring muscle cars from Mustangs to Cameros, to Chevelles to Trucks and lots of others in between.
He is the exclusive mechanic to distinguished businessmen in Modesto who entrust him to work on their collection of muscle cars including a 1970 Boss 302, 1968 Shelby GT 500 convertible and 1970 Chevelle SS 396 to name a few.
Joel credits his professional work ethics and attention to detail to Gary Brenner, retired Beyer High School Auto Shop teacher who instilled these ethics in his students.
