Ok, so I’m a bit biased. But, I’m pretty proud of my old man, and he’s one of two mechanics at a really great auto repair shop in Eugene. They didn’t really have much of a website, so I put one together for them over the weekend. It’s small, but it does the job. Their shop is called Wagon Works.
However, I do have to say, if you’re in the market for a mechanic in Eugene, you’d have a hard time beating Wagon Works. He’s been working on my cars for as long as I’ve been driving, and has kept them running smooth and happily despite some of my best efforts. Once, “fixing” even meant going to work with a crowbar and a sledgehammer. But that’s another story.
They’re also the kind of shop I can easily promote, as he treats all his customers the same way he treats me. First, let’s make sure that car is safe to drive. Then, let’s talk about what it needs and what it doesn’t. If you can handle a few inconveniences, he’ll tell you which upgrades and fixes are worth doing now, and what you can put off until later (or never). It depends on what you want and can afford. But he’ll give you real options. He’s also the kind of guy who won’t charge you for shit you don’t need, and he won’t tell you to fix something just because they need to make a sale. They’re also about $25/hour lower than a lot of their competitors, because they have almost no overhead. Just two mechanics, working on cars. Saves them money, saves you money.
OK, as I said. I’m really proud of my dad, and I wanted to give him a little shout out. Now, go get your car fixed. Ask for Ron, and tell him his son loves him.
