You sure you are not talking about Michael??
YUp sorry that is Michael.
Well if he was refering to the young guy, I stick by what I said, he is an up and comming exotic mechanic, but he is still very much in the learning phase. A great guy to talk to, knows a lot about these cars but not everything and especially not when things out of the ordinary go wrong or for things more advance than changing a clutch or a service and using the diagnosing equipment.
He is a great guy, and will be a great exotics mechanic as he has a real passion and drive for these cars, but for now i'd rather him learn on someone elses cars. For instance now he is at IMG, he will quickly gain experience trying to get all of their imported cheap shit boxes in working order for sale.
I trust Lou more as I know he already knows his shit, is very reasonable and doesn't give me bullshit. A mechanic that invites you to his house for coffee, invites you out on his boat, shows you his personal race car projects and gives you his personal mobile number in my books is sure to be a keeper.
Although Michael, Lou and Vic are all very decent mechanics, only shame that they have all split up and Vic just doesn't have all the experience under his belt yet in my opinion.
I'd like to see Vic start his own shop one day, more competition with seasoned mehanics can only mean better service and better prices for the consumers.
