About Us

Formed in the winter of 2012/2013, our crew consists of three players.

Jonah An Aquarius, Jonah followed a twisted path to becoming a mechanic and a shop owner. He went to high school here in Buffalo at City Honors, went on to college and graduate school to become a school teacher in NYC and Hawai'i. He taught math and science for four years until he decided that being nice to kids wasn't for him, and went on to pursue a degree in physics from University at Buffalo. While at UB, Jonah bought a 1992 Honda Prelude on eBay from Iowa, and after bringing it home he realized the car was a total lemon and needed to be nearly completely rebuilt.  This was the first of many self directed learning experiences that lead Jonah to fixing cars for a living.  Jonah is currently an certified ASE Master Technician, ASE L1 certified, and an nys safety inspector.

When he isn't pointing his finger or solving life's great mechanical mysteries, you can find him playing hockey or kiteboarding on Lake Erie, practicing Jiu Jitsu or meditation, or reading a novel at Chipotle.

Brian A Pisces, Brian grew up in Upstate New York and then later on spent a good deal of time on Long Island. Initially, Brian learned the construction trades, and worked as a union drywaller in NYC for several years. Brian found his way to Buffalo State in 2004, and has lived on the west side ever since doing a mix of construction and automotive repair.  Brian is one of those rare blue collar types who is honestly intelligent enough to be a doctor, but works with his hands because it suits his style.  Brian is currently a certified ASE technician, and a nys safety inspector.

When Brian isn't meatclawing your problems away, you'll find him spending time with his three beautiful children, playing squash or reading something so dense it would give you a headache.

Jordan A Libra, Jordan grew up in Buffalo and found his way into computers early.  He then spent over ten years working in IT, later switching to Industrial Management.  A la Office Space, Jordan wasn't satisfied with the corporate life, and he courageously started a new career with us here at the shop in 2016.  With what Jordan currently lacks in experience he makes up with in intelligence and attention to detail.  We are lucky to have him.

When Jordan isn't working to improve the quality of life of everyone around him, you'll find him spending time with his wife Kristen, finishing a home improvement project or finishing a home improvement project to avoid spending time with his wife Kristen.  Just kidding Kristen!
